Puppetry Exhibition

Cork Puppetry Festival 2015 is very proud to host an exhibition of puppets from some of Ireland’s top puppetry companies.

The exhibition will run throughout the Festival from the 12th-16th of August in the Camden Palace Hotel.

“Puppets aren’t only about the shows.  The skill that goes into devising characters, making the puppets themselves and then learning how to bring them to life are all a part of the craft of puppetry and Cork Puppetry Festival will celebrate all aspects of puppetry.  This exhibition of puppets who are not in motion allows the viewer to admire the craft-based side of the art of puppetry and to take their time and interact with the puppets as works of art as well as complex theatrical characters.”
