Hogarth Puppets

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Hogarth Puppets and the Hogarth Puppet Theatre, founded in the 1930s by the wife and husband team of Ann Hogarth and Jan Bissel, were Britain's leading exponents of the art of puppetry for many years. The company's work bridged the transition between the naturalistic, imitative style of puppets still common in the early days and the highly stylised work to be seen from the Sixties and Seventies.[1]

They were brought to South Africa in 1954 by the National Theatre Organisation, to tour the country with their show.
