Seattle Crankie Festivals

NW Puppet Center's 3rd Crankie Fest - Oct. 1st, 2016. It was a sold out success. See pictures below.
The NW Puppet Center in Seattle, a magical place for a crankie fest. During intermission you could visit the museum and crankie merchants. Thank you to Dmitri Carter, Director of the Puppet Center. Oct. 1, 2016.
This is Katherine Fahey, telling a ghost story. We used live video projection so that everyone could see. There is a split second delay. The funny thing about this picture is that the skeleton head does not show up above in the projected image. There was a ghost in the box! :-)
Charmaine Slaven and Charlie Beck's crankie The Grey Goose was performed on a foot powered crankie box. Totally cool! 10/1/2016
Dejah and louis Leger, performing an old Quebecois song. Had the audience in stitches. dejahleger.com, 10/1/2016
PODORYTHMIE (Sue Truman, Pascale Lelong, Cil Pierce, Julia Derby and Prairie Wolfe) premiered Waves of the St. Lawrence using automatons in front of the crankie scroll. Loved doing this! 10/1/2016
This is Dmitri Carter, Director of the NW Puppet Center, historian and puppeteer and maker of crankies! Many thanks to him, the puppet center is a Northwest treasure. nwpuppet.org
