Baird puppets get better storage. MASON CITY | When people visit the Bil Baird Puppet Collection at the Charles H.
MacNider Art Museum these days, they often say, "These are brand-new puppets! " said curator Mara Linskey-Deegan. But they aren't "new" new. They are puppets that have been in storage a long time and are now being displayed, thanks to a better archival system. Last year the museum completed a project to improve the preservation of the puppets that Baird, a Mason City native, and his wife, Cora, donated to the MacNider during the mid-1980s. The puppets Baird created were used in films, including "The Sound of Music," as well as TV shows and commercials.
The MacNider Museum began preparing for the preservation project in 2011. Each of the 550 pieces, including props, in the Baird collection was photographed and had a condition report done on it. Then each piece was rehoused in a new storage box with acid-free tissues and foam supports so they could be stored according to museum standards, said Linskey-Deegan. Bunraku. February « 2011 « Geneva POW. I first wrote a post about Camp Aliceville puppeteer Walter Buettner (1907 to 1990) on January 22, 2010.
You can go to that post and see the basic information about him (seen here in 1945 with one of his puppets). I am adding additional information based on an article in the Museum News for July 2010. When Buettner arrived at Camp Aliceville, he volunteered as a fireman in his POW compound kitchen. While working in the kitchen, he met Sergeant Ernst Hummel. Hummel was an artist and created the oil portrait of B. Buettner and Hummel, who had once cared for the props and costumes of a marionette theater in Frankfurt, gathered together twelve to fifteen other creative POWs and founded a puppet theater for the camp. The Camp Aliceville Puppeteers stayed in contact and got together for several reunions after their return to Germany. The Aliceville Museum task of identifying, locating, and telling the stories of former POWs is both fascinating and daunting.

Dans le champ des arts de la scène, l’objet semble interroger de façon prégnante la question de ses limites.
Se définissant moins par son essence que par son devenir sur la scène, l’objet a toujours eu sa place au sein de la représentation. Support de l’action, ressort dramaturgique, il est au fondement de la représentation comprise comme « système de signes » tel que l’a mis en évidence Anne Ubersfeld, étudiant notamment l’objet théâtral selon ses différentes fonctions sémiologiques. L’ouverture du champ théâtral aux autres arts visuels et l’émergence de la complexe notion de « spectacle vivant » nous engagent à aller plus loin encore.

Vittorio Podrecca fu l’impresario e il direttore della compagnia di marionette I Piccoli, da lui fondata a Roma il 21 febbraio 1914, e di cui quest'anno ricorre il centenario.
Con geniale intuizione e anticipando sempre i tempi, reinventò l’arte delle marionette, i piccoli attori di legno, (da qui il nome del teatro), legando a sé le più importanti famiglie marionettistiche e le migliori menti delle avanguardie figurative e musicali italiane del secolo scorso. Gli allestimenti dei suoi spettacoli erano delle vere e proprie opere d’arte, capaci di fare sempre il tutto esaurito da Parigi a Hollywood a Buenos Aires. Magazzini Einstein, in questo documentario storico, racconta la storia dell'Impresa Teatrale Italiana più longeva e più conosciuta del secolo corso, che in 50 anni d´attività realizzò oltre 35.000 rappresentazioni in tutto il mondo.
