Description

Marionette Puppetry may be a rarity in theatre today. However, the ancient art form, even in today’s digital age, is still alive and well. Watch as members of theatre companies Here and The Marionette Theater at the Swedish Cottage reflect on the magic behind string puppetry performances. From construction and maintenance of the delicate characters to the interaction of the marionettes with an audience, these productions require true imagination and engagement from both sides of the stage.
