On Sunday, May 7, Inlandia Institute and Riverside Art Museum present Puppets a la Carte with Nicole Cloeren. Parents, kids, and aspiring puppeteers are invited to join us for this “First Sundays at RAM” event as Nicole takes you on a journey through her extraordinary kitchen. “Puppets in the Pantry” uses object puppetry to tell stories only a puppeteer can cook up. Take a seat at the table and bring your own ideas as together we feed the imagination! Puppet shows are scheduled for 2:00 and 2:30 PM in the atrium.

Nicole B. Cloeren is the founder and creative director of Puppets a la Carte where she uses puppets to feed the imagination.  Emphasizing play and techniques of improvisation, she creates a space of surprise and wonder in which we all learn from one another through puppetry arts. Nicole is a Teaching Artist with the McCallum Theatre. She likes to pretend her PhD stands for doctor of puppet handling. When not talking with her hands – or to her hands – Nicole enjoys eating jicama, playing dice, camping, and spending time with her family.
