DIA Moment: Puppetslam Detroit! The Storming of the Winter Palace

Friday, January 18th |8 p.m.

Join us as Puppeteer Kathleen Kennedy Tobin and Company recreate in puppet form a seminal moment in Russian history. Three years after the overthrow of the government, the Bolsheviks commemorated their triumph with a massive on-site spectacle in front of and inside the Winter Palace, which will be recreated here in miniature form. The Storming of the Winter Palace is presented in conjunction with the DIA exhibition Fabergé: The Rise and Fall, now showing  through January 21st, 2013.
