Donovan Zimmerman is the co-founder and director of Paperhand Puppet Intervention. After graduating from the School for Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) in Cincinnati, he traveled to Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and India before moving to Oregon where he started the Sticks and Stones Theater puppet company. After taking part in the Haw River Festival for many years, Donovan met his wife Lea. The pair settled down in Saxapahaw. He and his longtime friend and collaborator Jan Burger have been working together on Paperhand for seven years. Last summer marked Paperhand’s 20th annual production.
