Punschi plays on

Punschi just arrived back from tour in Southern California where Shoshana Bass and Jana Zeller played for audiences in theaters, schools, libraries and festivals.

“I feel so in love with our work, with the people it connects us to, the communities that welcome us, and the places we get to visit. I feel love when I unpack my mother’s beautifully, hand-crafted flea circus, and set it up to share it with schools, libraries, cultural centers, theaters and in community parks. And I feel love that I get to tour and perform with my big sister. We have met so many beautiful people and so many children melted my heart with their willingness to be joyful, laugh and play. We are inspired to learn the show in Spanish for next time!”

-Shoshana Bass
