Glass Half Full Theatre (Puppetry & Physical Theatre of Objects & Ideas) creates original works of theatre using the precise physical language of both humans and puppets to address the momentous issues that humankind confronts across the globe. Our productions are designed to travel across linguistic and cultural boundaries to the heart of the imagination, where together with our audience we strive to probe, to question, to elevate, and to dream.  GHFT is the recipient of B.

They are a sponsored project of the Austin Creative Alliance, and are funded in part by The Jim Henson Foundation, The Puppet Slam Network, The Creative Fund, and The City of Austin Cultural Arts Council. www.glasshalffulltheatre.com
