Copenhagen Puppet Festival
Internationally puppet theatre has progressed by leaps and bounds in the past decades. Here puppeteers have gone new ways in their use of materials and modern technology, mixing styles and fusing puppetry with other art forms. In many countries puppet theatre for adults is today a recognised theatre genre on a par with traditional theatre and in cities like New York, London and Berlin effects from puppetry is being used more and more in the established theatres.
Three guest speakers will through examples and demonstrations examine what it is that puppetry brings and discuss the question: Why use puppets at all?
