Tongues Out Puppetry Presents: The Birth of the Moon


The Bakery Atlanta Presents a Free Matinee Shadow Puppetry Performance by Tongues Out!

Tongues Out is a New Orleans based puppet company consisting of five queer, trans, and women artists who challenge the space between light and dark, who expand and explore the boundaries of the silhouette. They are both inspired by the ancient tradition of oral and visual storytelling as well as contemporary movements that bring social justice into the realm of artistic expression. Aside from puppetry they are printmakers, painters, writers, and musicians.

The Birth Of The Moon is an original shadow play creation myth. It tells the story of the moons introduction to an unsuspecting valley of animals. These animals, who love their new moon intensely, decide to start stealing pieces of the bright light to keep for themselves. Can the animals stop their theft and join together to save their quickly disappearing moon...?

This is a pretty dang rare opportunity and we're stoked to have them.

Also, immediately following this show there will be an avant garde / classical percussion performance, be sure to stick around!

Doors at 7pm, performance at 7:30
This event is Free and All ages! But we will be accepting donations to help get these lovely people (and their puppets) to the next stop
