Please Release Me - The marionette project

November-December 2004

An interactive marionette show that allows the pupeteer to guide the marionette through a maze of explorative landscapes and stories.

This is a user based puppet project in which the puppeteer controls the marionette by the wooden handle attached to the puppet by strings. The puppeteer moves the puppet around a small stage and also can manipulate the puppet's arm and leg gestures by twisting and rotating the wooden handle.The puppet's movements and locations on the small stage in turn activate a visual wonderland for the puppeteer and audience to enjoy as we follow the puppet on a journey through an adventure, navigated by the puppeteer.
