About the Artist

Jeanette Yew (Seattle) received a 2007 GAP for material and video investigation and the construction of puppets and scenery for Yew’s adaptation of Franz Kafka’s short story titled The Hunter Gracchus. Yew plans to adapt the story into a parlor toy theater shadow puppet production. “The scale of this production is micro in size and all of its production elements (from puppets to scenery to lighting, sound and video) are to be portable. My goal is to create a production that can travel easily and it performed for an intimate audience environment.”
