Puppet shows arent just for kids anymore.
Master of the marionette, Ronnie Burkett was inspired as a kid by the
puppet show in The Sound of Music. Since then, his tender,
erotic and often funny shows have touched on topics such as
prostitution, sexuality and obsession.
His is latest oeuvre is called 10
Days on Earth, a spellbinding tale about loneliness and
isolation. As always, the elaborate characters are designed and
performed by Burkett himself.
