Using a cinematographic aesthetic, a documentarian’s eye, and the tropes of cinema verité, PuppetCinema productions shape the audience’s focus with a strong and steady hand. The audience has the feeling that the show is being created right in front of their eyes! Reality and fantasy are blurred and a sort of double vision occurs. But make no mistake, it’s all about the story.
What began as a creative experiment in Israel in 2009, has evolved into a mission to explore a dialogue between puppetry, object theater, film, foley and live feed. PuppetCinema was born out of a desire to build an artistic synergy between these complementary mediums, where they can happily co-exist and thrive.
