Puppetry festival: International performers stage plays in Chicago
Al Jazeera, 26 Jan 2023
Performers from 10 countries are coming together to celebrate the art of puppetry.
Hand puppets, marionettes and an array of modern figurines are taking centre stage at Chicago's International Puppet Theater Festival.
Although there are plenty of traditional puppets, some shows at the festival are pushing the limits of what it means to be a "puppet", as well as a "puppeteer".
