A Czech Is The Master

marionettes An unusual production tonight at AS220 — Yorick’s Marionettes Play Shakespeare. Here’s what they have to say for themselves.

Marionettes are puppets activated by strings. Those used by Yorick’s Productions are hand carved by artist Dusan Petran, a native of the former Czechoslovakia. Mr. Petran studied the Theater Arts at the Janacek Academy of Arts in Brno and was a theater stage actor prior to founding his own marionette theater. His carving skills earned him a Folk and Traditional Fellowship from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts.
