Current issue: 3/2018

This year’s third issue of the Loutkář – Puppeteer will focus on puppet theatre combined with film techniques, projection and photography. The issue offers detailed essays about Jan Švankmajer; about the connections between the development of cinematography and the so-called puppet-renaissance; interviews with Radek Beran, Marek Zákostelecký and an outstanding Czech photographer who has been documenting the evolution of Czech puppetry for decades – Josef Ptáček. The art history section will focus on the video art.

Greater attention is also given to the Skupa’s Pilsen festival and of course to the main event of the unprofessional puppeteers Loutkářská Chrudim festival. The important figure of Czech puppetry Václav Poul was put into the centre of attention and the cycle of important puppetry pedagogues this time focuses on Hana Voříšková. The issue also includes reviews of new puppet shows, theatre related news and the traditional series about puppeteers linked to the Czechoslovak television. The very first part of the new series about animated film is being introduced.
