In 1990, Joseph Cashore began showcasing his marionettes across North America, Europe and Asia. His shows have been described as “a wonderful world of breathtaking magic created by one man and his exquisite marionettes” by the Center for Puppetry Arts.
His moving and humorous performances have been presented across the nation in venues like the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., the Annenberg Center in Pennsylvania, the Kravis Center in Florida and many others.
Since 1990, Cashore has received many awards for his performances including grants and fellowships. He has also received the UNIMA Citation of Excellence, the highest honor an American puppeteer can receive.
