1. Hobey Ford @ ARTworks for one show June 29th @ 6pm, as part of the Beaufort County Public Library’s “World Tales” Hobey’s intricate shadow puppetry work and creation of the original rod puppets, the “Foamies”, have earned him a place on stages across the world. Hobey’s performances incorporate a variety of puppetry styles including Bunraku, rod, marionettes, “Foamies”, and shadow puppetry. Hobey adapts folk tales from various cultures for many of his performances, always adding a special “Golden Rod” twist.
