December 7th and 8th, 2018, I performed The Feeder at the Dougherty Arts Center as part of Austin Puppet Incident. The Feeder, a short solo tabletop puppetry piece, explores a complicated relationship’s unintended consequences.
The narrative centers on the surviving partner of a gainer/feeder couple’s run from the law after accidentally feeding his spouse to death.

The Austin Puppet Incident is an annual puppet event featuring local and national puppet artists performing short, original puppet works for adult audiences. Funny, sweet, deep, enchanting: it’s all here.
The Austin Puppet Incident is a joint creation of Glass Half Full Theatre and Trouble Puppet Theater Company to highlight short works of puppetry for adults created by local and national puppet artists. Austin-based performers include Connor Hopkins, Caroline Reck, Jess Bee, Gricelda Silva, Jesus Valles, Zac Crofford, Emily Weerts, Indigo Rael, Marina DeYoe-Pedraza, and Lori Navarrete. The event has been annual since 2009 and is funded in part by the Puppet Slam Network.
The Feeder was created by Marsian De Lellis at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Puppetry Conference, with a sound design by Becca Kessin, music by Kevin MacLeod – incompetech.com, and GUTS! The Intestinal Font by Morgan Musselle. Special Thanks: Ronnie Burkett, Melissa Dunphy, Tim Lagasse, Sharon Challenger, and Katie McClenahan
