Subject: [Puptcrit] marionettes

Just thought I would share these quotes with you   - I noticed   them from 
the definition of marionette on Wikipedia...   for more info (including the 
source of these quotes) go to

(not intending to start any long discussion about the veracity of these 
words, just thought you would enjoy reading them...)

Puppeteer David Logan states, "Marionettes are seen by many as the most 
complex form of puppetry perhaps due to the time it takes to make them and to learn 
how to effectively manipulate them. They are capable of a greater range of 
movement possibilities than the other forms of puppetry."

 Puppeteer David Currell states, "A puppet is not an actor and a puppet 
theatre is not human theatre in miniature, because when an actor 'represents', a 
puppet 'is'."

 Oscar Wilde wrote about puppetry, "There are many advantages in puppets. 
They don't argue with you, they don't have any tastes in art, and they don't have 
anything to lose."
