TABLE OF CONTENTS
|Welcome to Puppetry International #38 on the web, a resource to enrich your experience of reading the print version of the magazine, which can be obtained through this website, or through the UNIMA-USA office by contacting Lyrric Jackson at email@example.com
Included here are:
• An overview of the many variants of wayang, prepared by Karen Smith
• A glossary of terms relevant to Indonesian wayang, also compiled by Karen Smith
• An interview with Sam Gold, who created a wayang Hamlet with visual inspiration by E. Gordon Craig
• The full article on presenting Greek myths using wayang kulit figures by I Nyomen Sedana
• The full article on Tizar Purbaya and his wayang golek lenong betawi by Karen Smith
• The full article on the ritual uses of wayang kulit that still exist in Central Java. This includes an entire storyline used in one of the ritual performances. To Westerners, I suspect this will seem quite exotic, strange and illuminating all at once. It is by Joko Susilo.
• Additional images and descriptions of gunungan [The Tree of Life/Cosmic Mountain] including some rare and unusual figures, with thanks to Karen Smith, Kathy Foley and the collection of Tizar Purbaya.

Puppetry artists need audiences, and they need educated
and informed audiences. They also need directors and producers
with an increased appreciation for the creative opportunities
to mix puppets and people in theatre, film and video.
PUPPETRY INTERNATIONAL was founded
in 1994 and is designed to bridge the interests of puppetry
professionals and their audiences. As the lines blur among
actors' theatre, mime, dance, masks and puppetry, PUPPETRY
INTERNATIONAL is of interest to a continually
expanding readership.Published twice a year, PUPPETRY
INTERNATIONAL is distributed to specialty
newsstands nationally and is available at theatres, puppet
centers and festivals.

Puppetry Yellow Pages puts information about Company
members in the hands of producers and presenters in
North America and abroad. UNIMA-USA provides this listing
as a service to its members and makes no claims regarding
those who are listed in it. Those who wish more information
than is contained in the Puppetry Yellow Pages must
contact the companies directly.
Puppetry Yellow Pages provides contact information for
each company and basic information for up to three productions.
The productions are also cross-listed by language used,
audience size and type, as well as types of puppets
used. The Puppetry
Yellow Pages is available online.
Across the Sea
In 1994 UNIMA-USA began maintaining a list of members
who make their names available to foreign puppeteers
traveling through North America. This guide enables
traveling puppeteers to contact members who can open
their homes and develop friendships with artists from
other countries. UNIMA-USA only compiles the information;
the guide is made available to foreign puppeteers who
may then make direct contact with members listed in
the directory. If you would like to have the oppurtunity
to be contacted by a travelling puppeteer, write to:
