XPT: Xperimental Puppetry Theater

Center for Puppetry Arts

The nationally recognized Center for Puppetry Arts® in Atlanta, GA is calling for the submission of short puppet theater pieces and films (ten minutes or less) for Xperimental Puppet Theater 2019.

Xperimental Puppetry Theater (XPT) is a program that offers the opportunity for professional and emerging artists to explore and experiment, creating original puppet theater geared to adult audiences.

You can apply as a Project Director with your own show, or as an Individual Member available to participate in the different pieces as a performer, musician, puppet builder, etc.

Proposed pieces must be under ten minutes and may feature a myriad of styles of puppetry: shadows, marionettes, masks, automata, object theater, body puppets, rod puppets, etc.


We also accept short puppet films. Proposed films must be under eight minutes and may be stop-motion, claymation, live manipulation, collage, silhouette, or any other style of puppet film. Accepted films will be archived in the Center’s puppet film library.

We also accept puppetry-themed installation art for display within our atrium during the production in May.

We are pleased to offer funding for new works. Project grants up to $450 may be awarded. In addition, rehearsal space, some technical, design, and manipulation assistance may be provided, as available.

Questions? Contact XPT Program Director at xptdirector@puppet.org.
