''The Snowflake Man'' is an award-winning puppet production inspired by New England inventor Wilson ''Snowflake'' Bentley, the self-educated farmer and scientist who attracted world attention when he became the first person to photograph a single snow crystal. ''The Snowflake Man'' swings audiences into the historic 1920s through creative storytelling, intricately designed Czech-style marionettes, and a striking pop-up book of water color scenery. This memorable performance combines art, science, and a little known piece of New England history to magical effect!About the Performer:
Puppetkabob is an award-winning touring puppet company founded in 2001 by artist Sarah Frechette. Sarah is a puppeteer, artist and arts educator whose work has been experienced in Theaters, Museums, Art Galleries, TV and Film.
Puppetkabob's show ''The Snowflake Man'' was inspired by two New England spirits: that of Wilson ''Snowflake'' Bentley, pioneer of snowflake photography, and Sarah's Grandfather. Behind all of the puppet shows Sarah creates is the memory of her Vermont heritage, her grandparents and relatives who work with their hands and with their hearts.
The performance of ''The Snowflake Man'' blends czech-style marionettes, miniatures, pop-up paper art, music and live storytelling to convey historical information in a fun, dramatic and personal way.
