Join the Ballard Institute for our twelfth Summer 2020 Online Puppet Forum Series event on Facebook Live! These forums, hosted by Ballard Institute director and puppet historian John Bell, will consist of discussions with notable scholars and practitioners around the world about the past, present, and future of puppetry and puppetry studies.

On August 20 at 4 p.m. ET, join Ballard Institute director John Bell and Dr. Raphaèle Fleury, the director of Research and Innovation at France’s famed Institut International de la Marionnette, in a discussion about current French and European puppetry studies, the development of digital resources via the PAM web portal she oversaw, and her recent anthology Marionnettes & Pouvoirs: censures, propagandes, resistances (Puppets and Power: Censorship, Propaganda and Resistance).

A Doctor in French Literature and Civilization from Paris Sorbonne University, Raphaèle Fleury is director of Research and Innovation at the Institut International de la Marionnette in Charleville-Mézières, France, where she developed the PAM web portal of puppetry arts (lelab.artsdelamarionnette.eu) to create a new international digital perspective on puppetry. She is a co-founder of the “Innovation in Circus and Puppetry” research program of the National Center for Circus Arts and the Institut International de la Marionnette; and, with Julie Sermon co-edited the 2019 anthology Marionnettes & Pouvoirs: censures, propagandes, resistances (Puppets and Power: Censorship, Propaganda and Resistance). She has also worked as a dramaturg and librettist, for the Opéra National de Paris and the Angers Nantes Opéra, and her earlier research focused on dramatist Paul Claudel’s theater and the history of French puppetry in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Forums will be available afterwards on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
