Abstract:

Puppetry is, in its essence, a hybrid of the visual and performing arts; hybrid in its construction and conception: alive and not-alive; anthropomorphic but not human; straddling worlds, cultures and identities. This article, dedicated to the late Margareta Niculescu, former director of the Romanian company Țăndărică and the first director of the École Nationale Supérieure de la Marionnette in Charleville-Mézières, in France, explores some of the ways in which postcolonial questions emerge in contemporary British puppetry.
