PUPPETRY INTERNATIONAL seeks brief articles (max. 2000 words) for ist „Puppetry in/and China“issue. We intend a broad interpretation of the topic and a style that will appeal to general readers with a strong interest in theatre, art, and Chinese culture.

Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:

– An analytical profile of a specific director, puppeteer, company, production, or theatre tradition

– Cultural intersections and explorations of Chinese puppeteers in emigration or who are working abroad

– Political and social forces that are changing traditional Chinese puppetry

– Puppetry’s relationship with other Chinese performance genres

Personal essays and interviews are also welcomed.
