Are the arts taken seriously in Australia? This seems to be an eternal debate, that can only be judged by the quality of art that gets produced. What local theatre have I seen recently? Nothing to rock your socks off, that’s for sure! Occasionally I see something that inspires my desire to create, but the normal reaction is “that was not great!”… The time has come to change this attitude.
Puppetry is a little known art-form, especially in the western world, that brings together all the arts – design, sculpture, painting, writing, sewing, music, singing, performance, movement, directing, choreography and many others.
