CIRCA presents Thing Theatre, a program featuring work from Maryland puppetry artists Schroeder Cherry, Dirk Joseph, and Colette Searls. These three short films celebrate the power of objects to express our shared humanity. Susan Stroupe will host the event and moderate a live Q&A with the artists. This event is supported by the Maryland State Arts Council through a Maryland Traditions Folklife Network Grant. Films are child friendly with some references to violence in during civil rights protesting.

A young boy discovers that his strict grandfather went to jail as a child.
Material Witnesses (Dirk Joseph)

I Don’t Need That Anymore (Colette Searls)
