“When a puppet is good and true
and meaningful, it’s the soul of the puppeteer that you’re
– Martin P. Robinson, veteran Sesame Street puppeteer
This Sundance Special Jury Prize winner is
heart-warming and fun for the whole family. Being Elmo is the
inspiring story of how a shy nine-year-old Kevin Clash
pursued his dream of becoming a puppeteer on Sesame
Street. Raised in a low-income community, Clash’s
talents were evident in his homemade prototypes and the puppet
shows he staged for his mother’s daycare kids. But it
was after his first gig on a local children’s TV show
that he was truly on the path. Featuring exclusive behind-the-scenes
access at Sesame Street, Being Elmo captures the magic created
by Jim Henson, and is a tribute to Henson’s legacy and
the community of puppeteers who’ve enchanted generations
of children around the world. - Karina Rotenstein

am also pleased to say that we now have some provenance on these
wonderful Czech puppets were brought into the store. They are
in mint condition and we now know that they were made after
1948. They were purchased "as old" in the early 1950's.
from the Puppet
Museum in Chrudim in the Czech Republic wrote this about
puppets displayed in your slideshow are small marionettes
from a serial production for family theatres. They were manufactured
by Mr. Lubor Svorcik (*1911 - ?) from Pardubice, Czechoslovakia.
He obtained a licence for "a production of art puppets"
in 1948. He designed and produced the puppets himself, only
with a help of his wife until the early 1980´s."

dated but I thought I would include it for reference purposes.
Jim Henson and Muppeteers show kids
how to make puppets from simple things like socks. This video
aired on Public Television in 1969, prior to Sesame Street, on
Iowa Public Television's "Volume See" kids' show.

RED WAGON COLLECTIVE: DONATIONS

RED WAGON COLLECTIVE was formed in 2006 in response to our desire
to deepen our artistic, collaborative, and community-engaged
practices through residency projects that would enable us to
develop both intensive and extensive relationships in the Junction
- a rapidly changing neighbourhood in Toronto's west end. We
share a desire to work collaboratively with artists and non-artists
to create work that inspires new conversations; softens boundaries
between groups separated by age, culture, ability, and economic
status; promotes the presence of art in everyday life and contributes
to increasing public engagement in community development. The
work we create with communities is used in producing exhibitions,
public installations, and celebratory performance events.We
are currently working within the walls of the Evangeline Shelter.
