Description: This studynbsp;analyzes the history of puppet, mask, and performing object theater in the United States over the past 150 years to understand how a peculiarly American mixture of global cultures, commercial theater, modern-art idealism and mechanical innovation created uniquely modern and singularly American approaches which have reinvented the ancient arts of puppetry as essential performance modes of the twenty-first century.
