Encore Michigan

Carrie Morris Arts Production

CMAP was started by Carrie Morris, a director, puppeteer and performance artist with an interest in creating experiences that extend beyond the stage and out into the world. CMAP aims to produce works that employ puppetry, video, sound, electronic devices, other people and elements of the landscape as a way to recontextualize the space around us and bring us to a higher understanding of the world and what our place in it can be.

 Carrie’s work as a director and performing artist combines puppetry, multimedia and the gestural language of experimental theater. She has a BFA in directing theater from NYU and an MFA in studio art from U of M Ann Arbor. Her work has been seen in the New York International Fringe Festival, The Athens Museum of Art, Seattle’s Annex Theater, the Canadian Fringe Festival, the CATCH! New Artist Series in Brooklyn, NY, the Orlando International Fringe Festival, the Matrix Theater, as an invited artist working with the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra, at The Flicker Film Festival in Richmond, VA, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit and the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor. She is a J. William Fulbright grantee in the field of performance art for creative work in multimedia shadow puppetry in Solo, Indonesia, a Princess Grace grantee in the field of theater for puppetry design and direction and for several years was the program manager of Puppetry and Performing Arts at the Detroit Institute of Arts. She has been the director of CMAP (Carrie Morris Arts Production) since it was established in 2012 as a place where Detroiters can experience and explore contemporary puppetry, performance and multimedia works.
