EPISODES (article first published : 2001-12-17)

Episodes is the title of a puppet installation by the Handspring Puppet Company now running in the Tatham Art Gallery in Pietermaritzburg. The exhibition comprises carved wooden puppets from seven productions over 16 years that have been created by the acclaimed Handspring Puppet Company. Masterpieces of kinetic engineering, the puppets have been crafted with great skill by Adrian Kohler who produced the shows and curated this top class exhibition.

On view will be the stars from The Chimp Projects and the hyena from William Kentridge’s Faustus in Africa.

The exhibition closes on February 3, 2002.

Running in tandem with the exhibition will be a four-day puppet making workshop from December 18 to 21. Suitable for ages six to 14, the workshop will be conducted by Mduduzi Xakaza and Kobie Venter who will guide children in making exciting puppets from available materials. The workshop will culminate in a puppet show on December 21 at 10h30. More details from either workshop leader on 033 342-1804.
