double #30

Summary

Puppet theatre is situated at the interface between theatre and the pictorial arts and “double” has often considered the multifaceted relationships between the two. But going beyond visual matters, what about the acoustic facets of a production? Over and above the rapid access to suitable soundtracks from music that has already been composed and reproduced, puppet theatre has its own very individual approach to noises and sounds. This edition of “double” is less about classical stage music, musical puppet theatre, and more about sound as a vital challenge to theatre makers and an independent level in a piece of theatre.
