Veronica Barron creates physically exuberant visual theatre, using puppetry, dance, clown, music, and the human body.
Her current works, Be Clean When We Die and Sound Shadows, blend shadow puppetry, dance, and traditional and original Americana music, and have earned support from the Casteliers Festival (Montreal), Maison Internationale des Arts de la Marionnettes (Montreal), Les Sages Fous (Trois-Rivieres, QC), Central Square Theater (Cambridge, MA), Puppet Showplace Theater (Brookline, MA), Dance Complex (Cambridge, MA), the Montreal and Cambridge Arts Councils, and the Apollinaire Theater/The Boston Foundation.
Veronica tours domestically & internationally as a puppeteer for acclaimed DJ Kid Koala’s Nufonia Must Fall, which combines puppetry, live cinema, scratch DJing, and a string quartet to create a quirky, emotional love story.
As an actor, Veronica specializes in new work development, and has appeared in world premieres with the Huntington Theatre Company, imaginary beasts, Fresh Ink Theatre, and others. A longtime collaborator with Liars and Believers, she helped create Who Would Be King and ICARUS, for which she was praised as “the cast’s best voice” (Scott Heller, New York Times.)
Veronica holds a BFA in Theatre from Boston University, where her studies included visual & choreographic theater, classical Indian dance-theater, clowning, and playwrighting.
