Puppetry Directory

pakistani folk puppetry

The purpose of this directory of traditional Pakistan puppeteers, is to make available direct contacts for these talented puppeteers along with their work samples, to encourage and enable people to call book them for performances. Each group has collections of puppets, a storyteller, puppeteers and accompanying singers for a full live performance. I met them while searching for puppeteers to collaborate on my puppetry film, ‘Risalo‘.
