                                                                     The Beadle spots Mr Punch

 

               Most people know who Punch is, but most

               don’t know that the rascal arrived in this

          country as a string puppet and evolved into

          a glove puppet, in order to protect himself.

          After three centuries Movingstage have given

          back the strings to Punch and the other

          traditional characters associated with him.

          He, of course, retains his character, which

          has taken even longer to develop.

 

                                 

         "Everyone who's visited the Puppet Theatre Barge

         moored in Little Venice, knows it's one of the

         most charming theatrical experiences London

         has to offer. From the moment you step aboard

              you're transported to the wonderful world of 

         Movingstage Marionettes, with their humourous,

         song-filled string-alongs." 

                                               Time Out   

 

           "Marionettes are creatures of the upper air, like

        elves, like sylphs, who barely touch the ground.

        They dance in geometric perfection in a world

         more intense, less hobble-de-hoy, than our own."

                                                 A S Byatt                

           

         "...Their unvarying intensity of facial expression,

         impossible for living actors, keeps the imagination

        of the spectators continuously stimulated."

                                               George Bernard Shaw
