Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] "The Puppet Show" at the Institute of Contemporary


GVL >>>It just looks very interesting in general - a lot of puppetry  
theory and a lot of fantastic artists included in the
exhibition. Our own John Bell was one of the writers/curators for the  
accompanying text.
---------------------------
I was trying to figure out if they were going to do the Jarry play.  
The blurb says,

"The puppet show takes as a historic point of departure one of the  
first episodes of avante-garde art history: Alfred Jarry's 1896 play  
Ubu Roi that was conceived as a puppet show. Ubu's reign continues  
with the work of the South African artist William Kentridge in  
collaboration with the Handspring Puppet Company."

I have a message in to them about it, couldn't figure it out from the  
site. I'd drive to Philly for that.
best,
Ed A
