Squallis Puppeteers


Squallis Puppeteers

The Squallis Puppeteers are made up of many talented and unique people who are, in their own words, “committed to redefining puppetry.”

The troupe began with three women who all attended Earlham College: Jess Myers, a native of Boston, and sisters Nora and Carrie Christensen from Connecticut. The three moved to Louisville in 1994 and began experimenting with various artistic collaborations, at first involving just music and video. Their first puppet experiment was for a talent show at a party on a front porch. Since then, the three friends—who are still the main Squallis performers—have taken their act to much bigger audiences and begun incorporating political and social issues into their shows.
