The Adult Puppet Cabaret

The Adult Puppet Cabaret is an evolution stemming from the legacy of "Puppet Slams" pioneered by IBEX Puppetry and The Puppet Slam Network.

These cabarets showcase contemporary short-form puppet and object theater tailored for adult audiences. Held in intimate settings such as small venues, nightclubs, and art spaces, these performances unfold at the intersection of vaudeville, burlesque, and performance art. Rooted in experimental theater, art, music, and dance, they provide a refreshing alternative to the culturally uniform landscape of digital mass media.

The Adult Puppet Cabaret serves as a platform to cultivate and champion new puppetry works while catering specifically to adult audiences in San Diego, CA.
