If you don’t know the work of Basil Twist, you should. He’s one of America’s most outstanding puppeteers and creates work that has a beautiful, theatrical almost magical allure to it. Rather than tell you more, I’ll let National Public Radio and the man himself do the rest of the talking.

If you’re a fan Basil’s – or if you think that you’d like to be after listening to this feature – you can help support his work by contributing to the fundraising campaign for a remounting of his show Dogugaeshi in Washington D.C. as part of the Twist Festival.
