Nowadays, puppets are still used in Asia to stage legends and religious traditions. In the Western world, they a part of performing arts and offer a wide range of possibilities, and at the same time they represent the old art of street theatre, which is direct and spontaneous.
Exploring their possibilities for teaching is therefore a must; after all, puppets are the door to our inner world.
Puppets possess a rare combination of simplicity and a power to activate emotions and imagination.
Puppet work is closely related to text, movement, rhythm and voice. As beautiful as a puppet can be, it is only when an actor controls it that it comes to life. It is the actors' skills, emotions, will and actions that transform a doll into a puppet.
