Samenvatting
Puppets have existed in one form or another in almost every culture throughout the history of man. In Puppetry: A World History, Eileen Blumenthal provides a comprehensive overview of the history and technique of puppetry and examines in depth and detail the unique nature and abilities of puppets and the countless roles they have played in human societies across the globe for thousands of years. Blumenthal draws examples from an astonishing array of puppeteers and performances, as well as works of art and historical artifacts to provide readers with a comprehensive view of the world of constructed actors and the eclectic, and often eccentric, artists who created them. From bunraku to Miss Piggy, from the shadow puppets of Java to Howdy Doody, from African marionettes with outsize genitalia... (Lees verder) to sweet and loveable Lamb Chop, from Senor Wences's famous hand (literally) puppet to the minimalism of Russian puppet master Sergei Obraztsov, whose puppets consisted of nothing more than two small balls, each stuck on the end of a finger - the spectacular range and variety of the world's puppets is explored through more than 300 illustrations and Blumenthal's lively, accessible prose.
