The members of the puppet show “Puppets Got Talent” team are travelling to Russia for an international festival. This International Puppet Festival will be held in Petrushka on the twentieth of August. There, numerous international puppet artists will be using the famous Petrushka dolls and representing their countries.
The “Puppets Got Talent” show is produced by Kayan Marionette Independent Theatre. The team’s flying to the event is an initiative by the Egyptian Ministry of Culture to support youth.
The art of puppetry is very similar to the art of acting as the puppet actors have to study their characters very well before they can perform. Some even say they sit to talk with their puppets before the show begins.
