Last Saturday night I met up with some friends and went to an amazing puppet show. I say puppet show, but it’s more like puppet theater. The piece was called Hobo Grunt Cycle by Lone Wolf Tribe and it was part of the San Francisco Fringe Festival.

The play illustrates the connections between illegal dog fighting and war, and the hierarchies of circus performers and military personnel. It was beautiful, sad, magical and tragic – all-around moving and inspiring. Lone Wolf Tribe’s aesthetic is so inventive and what they do with the puppet art form is incredible. I really hope to be able to see more of them soon (they’re based in Brooklyn). You can follow them on facebook here.
This is the video I saw that got me interested in their work:
It was KILLING me. I love that piece so crazy much!
I was wearing a cute vintage 50s dress. I neglected to get an outfit pic that night, so I wore it again today and took some photos.
