Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Rebellious puppets: an example

Solo puppeteers, by the very act of performing, are doing some sort of  
"self-affirmation" message -- how many time have children been awed by  
realizing ALL THAT was produced by a SINGLE PERSON?

One of my first puppet shows used a sock puppet that was searching for  
his partner (lost in the laundry). He was very upset about being  
turned into a puppet, and wasn't sure that his sock partner would  
every accept him again...In his journey, he discovered some of the  
good points about being a puppet. By the time he finally found his  
sock mate, he was happy as he was, a puppet. His sock mate, not being  
a puppet, couldn't comment.
