Jean Barberis, a native of France, came to New York in 2000 to learn a few things and has never left. He is a well-travelled young man and a jack of all trades. Barberis is co-founder of Flux Factory's gallery space and arts collective.
Nick Jones grew up in Alaska, went to Bard College, and came to live in New York and be a stage director. For all practical purposes, he became a puppeteer. This is most acutely realized as part of the pirate puppet rock opera consortium “Jollyship the Whiz-Bang” which recently completed their 5 part serial at the Bowery Poetry Club in July. Mr. Jones has also performed work at Performance Space 122, chashama, Galapagos,the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Coney Island Siren Festival and with the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus. His underwater circus show “Circo del Mar” and the play for live actors “Canada’s Mid-Riff” will both appear at chashama in October and November, respectively.
And there will be more puppet shows, too.
