The Art of Puppets and Puppeteering
Creating a demonic hand puppet is one of the more unusual commissions for Auckland puppeteer Jon Coddington. It's taken a few goes to perfect Tyrone for the premiere of a play called Hand to God about a possessed hand puppet and the impact it has on the Christian ministry at a Texan church. Jon talk to Lynn Freeman about training the cast in the art of puppeteering which is not for the feint hearted. Hand To God will be on at Circa Theatre from 22 April - 20 May.
