In his own distinct, direct and poetical way, Neville Tranter has found an expression characterising Stuffed Puppet Theatre. He tends to use human-sized puppets combined with a minimum of stage design and sophisticated use of light and sound. His combination of down-to-earth humour, brutal austerity and virtuoso interaction with the puppets has opened the eyes of many formerly believing that puppetry was an art form only for children.
