About The Event

Join The Camaraderie as we enjoy a ladies night out sharing a delicious group dinner and then getting to attend the unprecedented Epidermis Circus! We'll meet at a nearby restaurant for dinner the opportunity to get to know our local lady friends, before heading to Soho Playhouse to take our seats for the show. 

A spicy puppet cabaret, hosted by a sassy grandma who keeps trying to steal the show. 

This beautifully twisted variety show is performed by Ingrid Hansen, who also puppeteers for Jim Henson Company’s Fraggle Rock. Watch behind-the-scenes as Hansen performs a live puppet film, animating cheeky vignettes in the palm of her hand and projecting them onto a huge screen. 

Tiny stories emerge that celebrate the hilarious impossibility of being alive and having a body: these fragile bags of meat and bone, carry us from place to place and allow us to laugh and snort and feel. SNAFU’s work has been compared to Wes Anderson and David Lynch, yet hilarious, absurd and profoundly human.

Directed by Britt Small (premiere director of Ride the Cyclone), with costumes by JIMBO (winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race), performed by Ingrid Hansen (puppeteer for The Jim Henson Company’s Fraggle Rock and Sesame)

“Both live and magnified on screen, in cunningly angled cameras and mirrors, we see Hansen create characters from her own hands, fingers, tongue, in a saucy and jostling vaudeville of ‘stars’. NUTTY, INGENIOUS, MESMERIZING.” - 12th Night.

“Utterly magical, insanely inventive, wickedly funny, BEAUTIFULLY TWISTED, and occasionally erotic! ★★★★★” - Free Press.

“Hansen turns anything and everything into a puppet and makes it funny. A MUST-SEE!” -

“5 STARS. Imagine Shari Lewis possessed by David Lynch” - Free Press.

“GENIUS PHYSICAL COMEDY!” - Entertainment World.

WINNER - Ed Fringe HoldOver Award

"Immensely funny, creative, uproarious and surprising...Her physicality is impeccable." - The Star Phoenix

“Unbelievably funny.” - PLANK Magazine

“Unbelievably charismatic.” - The Charlebois Post

“An amazingly versatile physical comedian with a knack for bringing inanimate objects to life.” - The Montreal Gazette


Hot off a tour to the most prestigious puppet festival in Montreal, Danish-Canadian puppeteer Ingrid Hansen returns to NYC after shooting 2 seasons of Fraggle Rock with the Jim Henson Company in Canada. She became well acquainted with the many sights and smells of New York the year she spent traipsing through Brooklyn parks puppeteering a big orange monster on Sesame’s new Emmy-Award-Winning series ‘Helpsters,’ alongside human actors Andrea Martin, John Oliver, Terry Crews, and Margaret Cho. At home in Canada, Ingrid also co-creates puppet theatre with the “big kids” inside federal prisons.
