Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army Goes To Prison: Summer Tour 2011

The Mysterious Rabbit Puppet Army is going on a month long excursion with their newest shows. What are prisons for? the feature show, uses shadow puppets to outline the history of the Prison Industrial Complex, from chattel slavery in the south to where it is today.

The tour is to raise awareness about the Prison Industrial Complex and the ways in which police and policing hurt our communities. “Our goal in this tour is to use art to explore these relationships and brainstorm with our audiences how we can fight this brutally racist system.” said Mysterious Puppeteer Michael Snacks.
