Abstract

This presentation explores techniques developed as part of a UK-based project on ‘monstrous bodies’ that explores puppetry as enacting social change around perceptions of disability. The project uses Bunraku-style direct-manipulation puppetry to engage with alternate ways of perceiving and performing the disabled body.
