Bottlehead puppets


If you are on Facebook and haven’t yet, consider fanning the page. You’ll find all kinds of fun bonus material there, like this photo album of sinister Ecuadorian trash cans and the back story on why they’re all shaped like scary clowns and other characters.

Anyway, I’m still in Ecuador. Today’s trashy discovery: soda bottles recycled as puppets for community theater. In this photo my colleague, Lourdes, displays a range of heads to be stuck on broomsticks and dressed up for community health workshops and other activities. I’m attending a youth outreach day tomorrow and hope to see some of these in action. More to come.  Update: photos of kids painting faces on the puppets now posted to Facebook.
