The Adventures of Noussa

Puppetry is a form of theatre or performance that involves the manipulation of puppets – inanimate objects, often resembling some type of human or animal figure, that are animated or manipulated by a human called a puppeteer. Puppetry takes many forms, but they all share the process of animating inanimate performing objects to tell a story.

Interactive Theatre is a presentational or theatrical form or work that breaks the “fourth wall” that traditionally separates the performer from the audience both physically and verbally. Interactive Theatre is not made for only entertainment, it is often produced to illustrate real-life political and moral debates. Interactive Theatre allows the audience to become completely immersed as participants who can interact with the actors and the spectator becomes the primary reason for the production.
