Artists of puppetry from around the globe converge in the quaint French town of Charleville-Mezieres for a week of incredible, beautiful, shocking, hilarious performances for the World Festival of Puppet Theatre (Festival Mondial des Theatres de Marionnettes.) And I get to be a part of it. Here with Blair Thomas and Co. in their latest production of Moby Dick, I am basking in the sheer saturation of the artform. Puppets are everywhere, in the squares, streets, theaters, museums, shops and gyms. The town feels literally overrun with puppets as giant quirky monsters tease delighted spectators, and puppet booths built on bicycles clear paths on the crowded cobblestone streets. There are close to 100 performances a day, and I am trying to see as much as I can while I'm here. Stay tuned for more pictures and highlights.
