Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Giant Puppets


I should have said "doing KING KONG with finger puppets won't have the SAME impact. Miniaturization is a different sort of impact (and often benefits from projected enlargements for bigger audiences.) I do find doll houses to be interesting, and do own a few odds and ends which could be considered to be "miniatures". Also I own a Polish Szopka which is sort of a miniaturized theater/church.

Vlaimir, could you please tell us more about the miniature theatre and how it is used---what animates on stage? From what point(s) would a viewing person be to see the various angles of the theatre? Whose work brought it to fruition? 

I am curious to know more since I am handicapped by not reading the text.

"Just don't try a live production of KING KONG with finger puppets. It won't have the impact"? Are you sure?

Are we talking about PUPPET THEATER? Then take a look....

Human-size "King Kong" would be a giant... if we are talking about Puppet Theater.


Good luck with giants.
