The world of puppetry with Philippe Genty
Part of a series of six specials showcasing the work of puppeteers from various parts of the world. This program features French puppeteer Philippe Genty, who specializes in abstract forms of puppetry. Genty's puppet creations are manipulated by performers clad in black velvet and isolated in a black void to give them clarity and focus. Excerpts from Genty's live performance at la Bourse du Travail in Lyon are interspersed with interview segments in which Genty reveals the psychological, emotional, and symbolic nature of his work.
