Red Herring Puppets

Puppeteer Lisa Aimee Sturz, the founder of the Red Herring Puppets, welcomes us into her world.

Puppetry has its roots in folklore, religion, and magic. The first puppets on the North American continent were part of the ceremonial rituals of Native Americans. The 20th century brought ethnic puppeteers to the US. Their performance styles and designs influenced the permanent vocabulary of puppet theatre. Lisa Aimee Sturz, the founder of the Red Herring Puppets, is a puppeteer who lives in Tucson. She welcomes us into her world.
