Description

San Francisco–native Basil Twist has established himself, over a 20-year career, as

one of the foremost puppeteers in the United States. Twist is renowned for having

advanced new techniques and genres of performance that bring puppeteering

into the realms of contemporary theater and visual art. Through both technical

innovation and poetic force, his works conjure iconic worlds on the stage. Twist is

the Mohr Visiting Artist at Stanford University for Spring 2014.
