‘THE GAME OF TIME’ by DAVID ZUAZOLA at LA SALA FÈNIX

‘THE GAME OF TIME’ by DAVID ZUAZOLA at LA SALA FÈNIX

Is it really possible to make a show comprising seven stories, each lasting seven minutes, directed by seven directors from seven different countries? David Zuazola, a Chilean puppeteer who lives in Madrid, has taken the number 7 as the organising principle of his new project. Magical and spellbinding, a sacred numeral that many believe to be at the heart of the organisation of the Universe! The universe that Zuazola explores is personal, plumbing depths that are … Read entire article »

Sir Pendulum and the suitcase of 2018

Sir Pendulum and the suitcase of 2018

We tend to experience the arrival of each new year as though we had stepped on to a staircase going in one direction, that of biological time marking growth, maturity and decrepitude. And, certainly, for the majority of people the years circulate along this curve, from birth to death. For Western societies, since the Modern era led us to believe in progress, years always proceed along the straight line from less to more, from worse to … Read entire article »

Puppets and Bridges

Puppets and Bridges

(Devil’s Bridge -Rakotzbrücke- in Kromlauer Park, Gablenz, Germany. Photograph by Kilian Schönberger.) Catalonia, as everyone knows, is going through delicate and confusing times. At Puppetring, and its sister magazines Putxinelli and Titeresante, we are particularly interested in building bridges, never in destroying them. Puppetry and other associated arts are fundamentally cosmopolitan, mestizo (of mixed race) and integrative. As we have said in this magazine on previous occasions, puppet theatre allows us to realise the following paradox: … Read entire article »

‘Identitats’ (Identities), by Rocamora Teatre

‘Identitats’ (Identities), by Rocamora Teatre

At last, we were able to watch at the Teatre de Ponent in Granollers, a performance of the new show IDENTITATS (Identities) by Carles Cañellas and Susanna Rodriguez of the Rocamora Teatre Company. An enormous challenge, which both puppeteers, residents in the village of Calders, took upon themselves in order to open this new cycle in their lives. I saw the first steps during the project presentation in San Sebastian at the Unima Congress 2016 … Read entire article »

Puppets and cities of Catalonia – Part 1 – Barcelona

Puppets and cities of Catalonia – Part 1 – Barcelona

It is worth looking closely at how puppets are organised in a specific geographical ecosystem, as in Catalonia. A territory with about seven and a half million inhabitants and an area of 32,106.5 km², it is composed of four provinces with their corresponding capitals: Barcelona, ​​Tarragona, Lleida and Girona. A region, a country or a territory, it is one of the Autonomous Communities of the Kingdom of Spain; it has a language of its own,Catalan, … Read entire article »

Barcelona, a string-puppetry capital

Barcelona, a string-puppetry capital

In recent years Barcelona has become a veritable String Capital, not the most important in Europe, of course, but of growing significance in terms of the number of highly prestigious string puppeteers who live in the city, as well as of young professionals who are starting out in this branch of puppetry. This is apparent in international festivals of the genre, which increasingly feature artists from Barcelona [1]. Harry V. Tozer and his skeleton marionette. We have … Read entire article »

Catalonia – puppets, a national heritage

Catalonia – puppets, a national heritage

This article – written in collaboration with UNIMA Catalonia – aims to create an initial, general outline of what could be considered as the Puppetry Heritage of Catalonia. This first approach to a rich and complex subject will be expanded as new material on the subject reaches us. If our point of departure is the concept of heritage, and if we take the word in the sense of an inheritance from our predecessors, then our … Read entire article »

In defense of the puppeteers imprisoned in Madrid

In defense of the puppeteers imprisoned in Madrid

It is quite incredible that such things can still happen! Two pupeeteers have been imprisoned for a knockabout show that may be a bit strong but which is, nevertheless, in keeping with the style of such shows as they have always been performed, both in Spain and throughout Europe. Two young puppeteers, just starting out in the genre of knockabout, street puppet theatre – one of the most difficult forms there is, demanding that one … Read entire article »
