The Puppet and Its Double was founded in 1999, with the thought that anything can be brought to life through manipulation and imagination. The group set about exploring many different styles of Puppet Theater, and in the process has created a sophisticated and magical aesthetic of transformation. Its interests are widespread: using hand, string, rod, table-top, and shadow puppets. The group pushes past boundaries of all kinds: the company does object theater, and theater using puppets together with actors. The company members are innovators seeking inspiration through a constant stream of challenging projects across a variety of media and disciplines. Their productions are visually poetic and surprising in ways which open the imagination of audiences everywhere.
