Blood from a Turnip is a puppet salon celebrating the diversity of puppet expression and the range of folks who tell stories through objects.

Since its founding in 1997 the event has presented short form puppet shows in a variety of styles and incubates the professional and amateur puppeteer alike.

Threaded through with charming and personable musical interludes, Blood from a Turnip (BfaT) is excited to make its Firehouse debut, opening its circle to puppeteers throughout the DMV.
