We create puppets, perform opera, stage parades,
host workshops, and build community.


Redwing Blackbird Theater is a small performance and workshop space in the Hudson Valley in Rosendale, NY. We work in communities creating puppet parades, shows and puppet exhibits that ask how people can live together in today’s world. We strive to create what does not yet exist, and to go deep enough to draw out what has always been there.
