Rod Puppets

Rod puppets are worked with one puppeteer at tabletop height or can be free-floating, if the puppeteers are visible...If the puppeteers are hidden, the puppets are held overhead inside a puppet stage. Human characters will have an internal mechanism which turns and nods the head, with arms worked with external rods. A skirt or tunic hangs down, giving the illusion of legs, but without the weight or structure. Rod puppets are light and easy to operate, and can be an affordable alternative to more complicated puppets.
