Colourful puppet show enthralls children

Islamabad—The National Puppet Theater of Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA) here Monday enthralled the children of various educational institutions with its colorful puppet show.

The show entertained children with movement of puppets featuring stories related to social issues like environment, health and education to create awareness among the students.

While popular folk tales, skits and national songs were also staged by puppets in vibrant costumes and traditional jewelry to introduce the children with rich cultural glimpses of Pakistan.

The show is a regular feature of PNCA’s programmes to provide quality entertainment and engage children in positive activities.

The puppeteers brought informative entertainment for children and demonstrated their skills of moving puppets guiding the students about various issues in form of stories, songs, dances and tableaus.

A Puppet is an inanimate object or representational figure animated or manipulated by a puppeteer to show plays or presentation that is a very ancient form of theater, said the performers.

The National Puppet Theater has got masterly skills of presenting puppet shows which is regularly promoting this art among the children across the country.

Puppet shows are popular as ‘Children Theater’ which entertains with different varieties of puppets that are made of a wide range of materials, depending on their form and intended use (evil or good performance).

Light Curtain puppet presentations specifically focus on light to highlight small areas of a performance, allowing the puppet to be seen while the manipulators remain invisible.

The puppets stand on a stage divided into an unlit background and a well lit foreground, meeting to form a “curtain” of light. The puppeteer dresses in black and remains hidden in the unlit background of the stage while the puppet is held across the light curtain in the lit foreground of the stage.

While some shows are presented with “String Puppets” in which puppets are suspended and controlled by a number of strings, plus sometimes a central rod attached to a control bar held from above by the puppeteer.

The control bar can be either a horizontal or vertical one. Basic strings for operation are usually attached to the head, back, hands (to control the arms) and just above the knee (to control the legs).

This form of puppetry is complex and sophisticated to operate, requiring greater manipulative control than a finger, glove or rod puppet.

These shows are held every week with free entry while children and students from almost every institution are invited to enjoy the show alongwith their teachers and parents.
