Om boka

Theatre-Rites are regarded as pioneers in the field of object-led and site-specific performance, creating ground-breaking work for family audiences since 1995. This book marks the company's 25th anniversary, offering the first in-depth exploration of artistic director Sue Buckmaster's visionary practice, in which anything can be animated.





This book draws on original research, including five years of in-depth interviews between its authors, images from Theatre-Rites' archive and Buckmaster's private collection, detailed observations from the company's professional training workshops and personal reflections on past productions. A timely and compelling advocacy for the importance of high-quality experimental arts provision for young audiences is made, distilling learning from decades of the company's professional activities to motivate and empower the next generation of object-led theatre-makers.





Theatre-Rites: Animating Puppets, Objects and Sites is an invaluable resource for any puppeteer, actor, dancer, visual artist, poet or student interested in expanding their understanding of how to incorporate puppetry and/or symbolic objects as metaphors in their work.
