Man: Puppet shows aren’t for kids of today.
Me: Really?
Man: Yeah, kids just want IPads and computer games.
Me: So where did you get that information from?
Man: It’s just a fact kids a completely different
Me: Have you seen the pics of kids enjoying puppet shows by Custard Pie puppets?
Man: Nah, they prefer computers.
Point: If you think you know something or simply find yourself with a strong view, just ask yourself: Where did I actually get this information from? Could I have been indoctrinated? From a large multinational perhaps? Like a computer company? Today’s kids haven’t changed, they still want to be entertained and to interact specially if it’s a shared experience. What do YOU think?

The amazing Handspring Puppet Company (rod puppetry)
For this collaboration between South Africa's Handspring Puppet Company and renowned artist William Kentridge, animated film, live performances, South African-inspired music, and wood puppets are used to present an adaptation of German writer Georg Buchner's famous, unfinished play of jealousy, murder, and the struggle of an individual against an uncaring society which eventually destroys him. In this version, directed by Kentridge, Woyzeck is a migrant worker in 1956 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The performance is presented in conjunction with the MCA DNA: William Kentridge exhibition.
