Sandglass Theater presents the New Visions puppetry series, serving as a laboratory for new works by artists in the field of puppetry and movement theater. New Visions presents innovative, adventurous, and socially relevant pieces, that cross-pollinate between genres and disciplines, from dance to puppetry, circus to storytelling . Sandglass Theater is excited to offer this forum for artists to engage more deeply with their work and bring that engagement to our community.

Lively facilitated discussions follow the presentation of each piece, bringing an additional level of engagement between artist and community. Dedicated to creating an intercultural and intergenerational dialogue, New Visions brings artists whose voices add to and challenge the cultural and artistic dialogue in our community. The performers who take part in this series are looking to gain a deeper insight into the impact of their work, and gather ideas that will push their material to the next level.
