Dorothy James is a Brooklyn based puppeteer, educator, and maker of tiny things.


She has puppeteered for Basil Twist, Wakka Wakka, Nick Lehane, Radio City, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, BBC, Amazon, and Apple TV+. 

As a creator, Dorothy uses table top, shadow, rod, and paper cut puppetry to create otherworldly narratives that meld the grotesque with a sense of innocence. 

She recently collaborated with banjoist Hilary Hawke, creating shadow imagery for her new concept album Open the Doors. Her paper cut stop-motion film "Lethologica" was an official selection of Chicago’s Big Teeth Small Shorts Film Festival and the Upstate NY Horror Festival.


Bill's 44th  is a
NY Times Critic's Pick!

Happy birthday, Bill!
