About Juliana Brandon

Hellooooo!!!
I am Juliana Brandon, and I create lots of different bizarre things. My focus right now is on creating shadow puppet mini operas, and the occasional full opera. I call what I do Paper Puppet Opera, and while I sometimes produce full operas with a cast of singers, instrumentalists, and puppeteers, I recently developed a one woman show with a small puppet theater I can take on the bus. I sing soprano along with electronic backing tracks while I manipulate paper puppets I made myself. For these one woman shows I've been focusing on cantatas and combinations of art songs and arias to create 10 to 45 minute long shows. You can see more of what I do here.
I want to have the time to make more of these little operas and the financial ability to bring them to more people, both children and adults, and your generous support can help make that happen!
Here's a short video of an aria from my first Bach cantata for shadow puppets:

I also create love poems and colored pencil drawings on strange surfaces. I self published my first book of poetry, 30 Love Letters, in the spring of 2016; and a book of meditations in conjunction with my puppet show of Schubert's song cycle, Winterreise, called Winter from Above. I also set up a website to sell my bird drawings on doilies so I can donate ten percent of the proceeds to brain cancer research. 

If you would like to support me at a different monthly level send me a message and I can create a level for you. My reward system is simple. For all amounts I will give you a custom drawing once a year for the value of that donation.

Your financial support can help me accomplish all of my goals and more! Even more than that, your faith in me, your friendship, and appreciation mean the world to me. Thank you so much for your support in every avenue of life!
