Justin Perkins is a theater artist based in New York. He designs and builds objects for performance, and also performs as a puppeteer and actor. In recent months, Justin and his work have appeared at Abrons Arts Center, Ping Chong + Company, Ringling International Arts Festival (Sarasota), Miller Theater at Columbia University, La Mama, Triskelion Arts and more.
His visual art unifies, sometimes uneasily, the organic with the mass-produced, baroque refinement with punk anarchism.
Justin lives in Brooklyn, like everybody else. He was born in New Hampshire, like Sarah Silverman.
Justin teaches puppetry and filmmaking in public schools and community centers in NYC. He holds degrees in theater from Vassar and Sarah Lawrence Colleges.
