 Project objective

This project aims at transcending boundaries between « high » and « popular » cultures, here established playwrights and anonymous writers, by investigating their productions for a same medium: puppet and marionette theatre. Focusing on key-periods of drama history (1600-2000) it explores how puppeteers and authors both contribute to the raise of a specific dramaturgy. Introducing these repertoires into the history of Western European drama opens a double ground-breaking perspective: on one side, it exceeds the limits of local inquiries and reveals cultural transfers through social groups and nations; on the other, it leads to reexamine theatre historiography by considering the cohesion of “theatrical systems” (Marotti) and giving visibility to a long despised and scatered corpus. The main objectives are 1) to gather a corpus of representative plays which document the development of puppetry in Western Europe (Austria, Belgium, England, France, Germany, Italy, Nederlands, Portugal, Spain); 2) to identify the specific features of puppet and marionette plays and their variations through time, cultural areas, conditions of production and targeted audiences; 3) to re-evaluate the contribution of these repertoires to the construction of European cultural identity. The principal investigator brings to this project, besides a long experience of internationally recognized research, an excellent knowledge of artistic and cultural networks which guarantees the access to primary sources as well as the mobilisation of experts and partner institutions. Using digital humanities tools and methods, the project will produce a platform making available the selected corpus through a data base and searchable thesaurus, and offering innovative resources to the research community, pedagogues, practitioners and public at large. The research will lead to a better integration of puppetry into theatre history, an increased knowledge of its heritage, and a growing institutional recognition.
