This show features Los Angeles comedic puppeteer, political satirist, filmmaker, and performance artist Paul Zaloom (BA RUP '73) as the Evening Alumni Showcase at Goddard College's 150th Anniversary Homecoming Weekend!
In his latest puppet extravaganza, WHITE LIKE ME: A Honky Dory Puppet Show, Zaloom employs the drawing room medium of toy theater to tell the story of the archetypical “white man” and his universe. White-Man leaves his planet Caucazoid, travels through space, “civilizes” the earth (populated with aliens), becomes a philanthropist and savior, and finally, freaks out about his approaching minority status.
The puppet cast is drawn from the gigantic collection of knick-knacks and brick-a-brac collected by the artist over the years: action figures, toy cars, dolls, found objects, weird junk, and more. Plus Zaloom's creepy dummy sidekick Butch Manly drops by to add his bilious two cents. A comedy.
Performed by Paul Zaloom; created by Zaloom and Lynn Jeffries.
