THEATRE ON A TABLETOP: PUPPETRY FOR SMALL SPACES
By Kuang-Yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin
This text on making and teaching theatre through toy theater, object theater and overhead projection theater is more than just a how-to manual. It encompasses a whole philosophy of performance and education, together with much practical and technical information. Drawing on the personal journeys of the two co-artistic directors of CTW, it shares techniques drawn from their decades of experience as artist/teachers and serves as an inspiration and example of the many ways that very small puppet performance can be creatively integrated into the skill sets of theater practitioners and educators on any level of expertise. The text includes detailed information on making and teaching through various genres of tabletop puppetry together with photos, diagrams and sample play texts.
