Hitler Puppet - Neville Tranter
Neville Tranter with his Hitler puppet. In 1978 Neville Tranter came with his Stuffed Puppet Theatre to the Festival of Fools (street theatre) in Amsterdam and never left.
He developed his typical style of visual theatre with human size puppets. Neville Tranter is the only person on stage. Neville Tranter is the founder, the artistic force and the only constant factor in all those years of Stuffed Puppet Theatre. He is Stuffed Puppet. In his own brutal, ruthless but poetic way, he confronts the audience with their fears and dreams, urges and desires, personified by what are often life size talking puppets. Combining a minimal decor with sophisticated music,lighting and sound, using the oldest devices of the theatre as well as state of the art technology, Neville Tranter is capable of evoking images that the audience will not forget for a long time.
