Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Brecht and puppets?

Dear Debra and others,

Felix Mirbt co-designed with Tom Miller (then designer at Nova Scotia's 
Mermaid Theatre) Brecht's Happy End in 1981. Big, "bunraku-style" puppets with 
onstage manipulators. It was co-produced by Tarragon Theatre (Toronto), 
Theatre Calgary, and the Vancouver East Cultural Centre, the theatres to which 
the production also toured, and co-directed by Mirbt and Bill Glassco, AD (and 
founder) of Tarragon at the time (though he, like Mirbt, recently passed 
away). I have some article references I can send on tomorrow, but right now, I 
have to fly out the door.

Take care,
