To bring art into community and community into art through movement, puppetry and spectacle performance; creative re-use, education, and collaboration.
BareBones Productions is a Minneapolis-based 501(c)(3) performing arts non-profit. We operate as a collective of visual and performing artists to produce visionary parade sections, outdoor installations, and spectacle performances, generally involving stilting, bicycles, and great big puppets.
Our grandest production is The Annual Halloween Outdoor Puppet Extravaganza, a cult favorite throughout the Twin Cities.
Over the years, BareBones has also produced five annual Winter Pageants on ice and snow, five summertime Dumpster Duels performance competitions based on scavenged garbage, and various other outdoor puppet shows including The Little Match Girl and Raven Steals the Sun.
