For the love of puppets! Join HOBT & friends for a Valentine's Day Puppet Cabaret!

A fail-proof Valentine's day plan sure to:
- Not impress the person you're with
- Be more awkward than you are
- Give you a great story to tell your future grandkids

Because nothing says I love you like the faint smell of waffles, an awkward slanted floor, and experimental puppetry!

Tickets are $15 at the door (doors open at 7:30pm)
HOBT bar will be open (accepts cash & cards)

Live Music! Booze! Popcorn! Waffles! Puppets?

Recommended for ages 14 and older.

Steve Ackerman & Akiko, co-curators of Puppet Cabaret, are excited to expand the circle of cabaret artists by seeking (short!) applications for our upcoming Puppet Cabarets Selected artists will be given a stipend of $75

Neighborhood Night at Midtown Global Market: Free Puppet Shows for Kids & Families

Midtown Global Market is hosting six, FREE Heart of the Beast performances in the Midtown Central Court on Thursday nights during the weekly Neighborhood Night celebrations this winter.

Coming Home to Wild: New Works on Extinction and Resilience

HOBT is thrilled to announce Coming Home to Wild: New Works on Extinction and Resilience, an evening of new works by Julie Boada, Rebekah Crisanta de Ybarra, and Wild Conspiracy (Elle Thoni and company).

Funded in part by NEA, the artists ask: in the face of extinction and climate catastrophe, what do our ancestors have to teach us about resilience? Join the artists and community partners for two immersive performances in March to trace a path from who we are, to who we can become when we come home to wild.

MayDay in Metamorphosis

We are working to recreate a more deeply sustainable, equitable, and accessible MayDay in 2021!

In the interest of the long-term value of this MayDay celebration, we are choosing to rebuild. We choose to live into a new kind of working and creating art together: one that is truly collaborative and opens up new opportunities for transformation by placing our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion at the center and giving power to artists and leaders of color.

The first MayDay Council made up of artists and community leaders who will lead this work is currently being selected and will be announced in mid-December!
