Puppetry in Prague
In Prague, coincidence has it that we met with a great puppet maker, designer and performer, Michaela Bartonova this week. Michaela runs Tineola Theatre and has worked as artist, puppet designer and performer throughout Europe and Japan since 1989. Michaela also runs workshops in Europe and Australia for puppet design, carving and communication through puppetry. She has recently worked on a production Étaín- based on a Celtic Myth and The Haywain - a production about the fantastic world of Hieronymus Bosch's painting performed with wood-carved Czech figures, through an interpretation of Bosch's painting by figures, music, light and rhythm.
