Finding Home is a trilogy of pieces, poignant, joyful, and humorous, about puppeteer Monica Leo's parents and their immigration experiences. The first piece, My Father's Imaginary Friend, uses candlelight and shadows to interpret the story of her father's hope and survival during his incarceration in a concentration camp.

 

The second piece, German Eggheads in Rural Texas, traces the family's life in a Lutheran parsonage in rural Texas. Monica uses her mother's illustrations to create puppets and scenery that tell droll stories of language and cultural mix-ups and misunderstandings.

 

The third piece, Mutti's Muscles, uses dolls and other objects to follow her mother's rebirth as a metal sculptor and political activist in the United States after her father's death.
