Description

Theatre Institute Prague has produced Czech Puppet Theatre - Yesterday and Today, the long-awaited publication filled with information, illustrations and full-colour photographs documenting the history and trends of Czech puppet theatre from its earliest beginnings to today. Follow the course of Czech puppet theatre history - from the very first Czech puppeteer, Jiří Jan Brat, to the world-famous puppet characters of Spejbl and Hurvínek, the films of Jan Švankmajer and the illusionary Black theatre. Learn more about contemporary puppet theatre companies and theatre makers, like the DRAK Theatre and the Cakes and Puppets Theatre that today grace the Czech puppet stages and have made their own impression at festivals and theatres all over the world. Czech Puppet Theatre - Yesterday and Today is a unique collector's edition for anyone interested in the movements and trends of Czech puppet theatre - or simply anyone interested in looking at the more than 70 pages of remarkable full-colour photographs of puppets taken by some of the Czech Republic's leading theatre photographers. Czech Puppet Theatre - Yesterday and Today also contains information about organizations, schools and other institutions involved in the art of Czech puppet theatre.
