“Radicality of the Puppet Theater” – P. Schumann [extract]

“Puppet theater, the employment and dance of dolls, effigies and puppets, is not only historically obscure and unable to shake off its ties to shamanistic healing and other inherently strange and hard to prove social services. It is also by definition of its most persuasive characteristics, an anarchic art, subversive and untameable by nature, an art which is easier researched in police records than in theatre chronicles, an art which by fate and spirit does not aspire to represent governments or civilisations, but prefers its own secret and demeaning stature in society, representing, more or less, the demons of that society and definitely not its institutions.”

[“Radicality of the Puppet Theater” – P. Schumann]
