Join the Ballard Institute for our last Spring Puppet Forum with Hua Hua Zhang titled “My Work in Chinese and American Puppetry.” UConn Puppet Arts alumna Hua Hua Zhang first studied classic Chinese puppetry techniques at the Beijing Art Academy in her home city. After receiving many awards for her performances as a member of the China Puppet Arts Troupe, she came to UConn’s Puppet Arts Program, earning her MFA degree in 2000. Currently the director of the Philadelphia-based company Visual Expressions, she designs and performs her own work in the U.S. and China, collaborates with such artists as composer Tan Dun. This forum is co-sponsored by the Asian and Asian American Studies Institute.

Admission to this event is free (donations greatly appreciated!), and refreshments will be served. Come early and experience our puppet exhibitions as well as the extensive video resources in our library nook. Forums will also be live-streamed on our page: For more information, call 860.486.8580 or email
