Dance Under Control

It is fascinating to observe the harmony of movement between the giant puppet and its manipulators. Are the puppeteers masters of the puppet? Or is the puppet trying to free itself from its strings, from the grip of its manipulators?  

The interaction between the giant puppet and the puppeteers becomes the dance of control, the dance of influence, the dance of manipulation.

 

The "dance of control" is a performance that depicts the dialectic of power and resistance.
