What if you saw a photo that was so breathtakingly beautiful it changed the way you thought about everything?  What if that happened to everyone on Earth at the same time?  Earthrise is a puppetry love letter to the Earth, remembering the moment on Christmas Eve in 1968 when our world was photographed by astronauts in space and our relationship with this planet changed forever.

Earthrise was most recently presented at the Dixon Place Puppet BloK festival (October 2017). Subsidized studio space provided by the A.R.T./New York Creative Space Grant, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
