Puppet Show: My Night in the Planetarium

Puppet Show: My Night in the Planetarium

From 3 to 3:45 p.m., best-selling children’s book author Innosanto Nagara’s true story of art and social protest will come to life as a dynamic pop-up puppet show. Created and performed by fellow artist/activist Tanya Nixon-Silberg, the show transports audiences to Jakarta in the 1970s, where 7-year-old Inno learns firsthand how a play has the power to spark a resistance movement. Featuring designs and puppets by Sarah Nolen, the story is brought to life with a rich soundscape, visual transformations, and kid-centered lessons about social justice. Recommended for ages 5 and up.

Mr. Haass, a career State Department employee, spent the first half of his talk on the state of the world and U.S.’s role in it.

He had an attentive audience and confidently gave his opinions on what sounded like a State Department briefing.
