occasional papers

Writing and research have always been important in the puppet theatre. Over the years much has been written about puppets and theatre by ourselves and other practitioners. In this section of the site we will publish our “Occasional Papers” which we hope will interest, inform and act as a spring board for your own ideas, whether you are in the profession or just curious.
