Jane Taylor, paper presented at Puppetry and Post-Dramatic Performance: An International Conference on Performing Objects in the 21st Century. Connecticut: University of Connecticut, April 2011

The paper considers Handspring’s signature form of puppetry, in which puppeteers are visible and expressive performers onstage alongside the puppet figure. Taylor considers the political and philosophical implications of representing the Subject (traditionally considered as a solitary integer) as a member of a communion of beings.
