THE GREAT PUPPET HORN
The Great Puppet Horn provides cultural critique as only bits of cardboard stuck to a stick can. In a mere 60 minutes hundreds of puppets are animated at break-neck speed. As discarded politicians fly by your ear delight in the shadowy characters who speak, beat-box and pole-dance for your entertainment.
