What is it about?

Puppetry is a resilient art form, as has been evidenced by the response of puppeteers to the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Perhaps this is fitting, as puppeteers have a long history of travelling to perform and adapting their performances to changing circumstances. In this report, we provide a sample of puppetry projects that are taking place around the world and some insights from puppeteers on how they are working through COVID-19; using puppetry to teach about COVID-19 and teaching puppetry in general; to entertain and to perform puppetry that is offered as ritual at a time of crisis.
