A moving experience

Just indulging my love of marionettes again. This is from a British theatre troupe. What I find interesting is that you have a very Brechtian setup here: the puppeteer is out in the open wearing a scientist's white coat, the lighting is provided by an unshaeded desk lamp. And yet still you get that feeling of life from the little dancing figure.

That was very neat - kind of a laid back Bunraku.

That's a nice comparison. Who knows? I might start putting some bunraku stuff up here, if I haven't already.
