No one else weighed in. I just wanted to start the conversation. Of course, Ronnie Burkettt of Canada is one of the most amazing masters of string puppet theatre.
There are more masters in other troupes in China and of other forms of string puppets in India, And there are masters in several traditional forms in Liege, Brussels, Palermo, Catania, Mynmar (“Burmese” string puppets) and Japan. Sri Lanka, too. YaYa Coulibaly in Mali and Danaye Kalenfei in Togo. Salzburg and Colla Family marionettes do great opera with string puppets. Masters exist of many styles and traditions. Lots to see on YouTube of course.
I’m really old and don’t go to festivals or travel any more so you younger people need to tell me about the new masters.
