• HANDSPRING PUPPET COMPANY
OVER THE PAST 30 YEARS HANDSPRING PUPPET COMPANY HAS PARTICIPATED IN THE CREATION OF OVER 16 THEATRE PRODUCTIONS. ALTHOUGH THE COMPANY HAS DONE SOME WORK FOR YOUNG AUDIENCES AND FOR TELEVISION, THE MAJORITY OF THE WORK HAS BEEN ADULT THEATRE.
“Handspring’s work has been instrumental in redefining boundaries between craft and art, fine art and performance art, the living and the dead. Their puppets for War Horse, have become icons of design innovation, receiving the Olivier Award for Design in London and a Tony Award in New York. These puppets embody a thirty-year development process during which levels of craftsmanship and expressiveness gradually matured. Handspring’s puppetry training methods developed concomitantly over time and then were propelled forward rapidly during the rehearsal processes with successive groups of puppeteers leading to openings of the play in London, New York, Toronto, Sydney etc.. Their training now embodies a philosophy of breath, of ‘group mind’ and of micromovement, which is being widely utilized in contemporary puppetry. And their puppet making too is very much part of a coordinated group effort with craftspeople in their Cape Town factory sharing their expertise across continents and welcoming puppet makers from abroad to interact with and develop their own methodologies. The not-for-profit Handspring Trust, which has developed out of the success of War Horse, now works in Masipumelele and Barrydale, bringing Young Leaders into the Handspring Factory in Capricorn Park for training, and returning them, inspired , to their own communities, where they are running annual festivals and puppetry workshops for younger learners. And Handspring’s senior puppet makers, decamp each year to Barrydale to help finish puppets and participate in the Day of Reconciliation parade and performance, which slowly grows in reputation.

So, for Handspring, puppetry has become a medium which can touch, reflect and amplify many aspects of our lives: self expression, care and respect for both objects and people, understanding of animal being, expertise in mechanical engineering.

Puppets can exist as objects and are indeed beautiful in themselves. But they magnify and extend their power when they enter the fourth dimension of time and performance. Then they become our emotional prostheses: mechanical objects which take on life and express our lives, whether in the schools and the streets of a rural community, or enchanting audiences on the world’s great stages.” Guild

“Through his raw mixed-media creations Ouatarra aims to bring out design that exposes the realities of modern Africa.

‘My goal is to provide a key point in a continent which suffers from imports and all kinds of imitation furniture, especially of poor quality and which does not reflect our culture.’

hoh1_hoh1_20140227_192610aRR6 Cape Town Art Fair curator, Andrew Lamprecht, stands in front of the world famous Tretchikoff “Chinese Woman”, better known as, the’Green Woman.’
(In fact she has a blue face.)

Lamprecht curated the Tretchikoff Exhibition in 2011, at the South African National Gallery in Cape Town. I heard a rumour at the Cape Town  Art Fair that the, green woman’ is about to be auctioned again. It holds the South African record for the highest sale price reached at auction – I was unable to find any figures.

The exhibition was surrounded by controversy, as some art critiques & academics felt that it was inappropriate to have Tretchicoff featured in the countries prestigious National Gallery.
Tretchikoff was nick named, ‘the king of kitsch’ and known as the ‘people’s artist’.
Born in 1913 in Russia and lived  in Cape Town till he died  in 2006.

“…In his heyday, Tretchikoff’s exhibitions drew record audiences at home and abroad. He pioneered the idea of selling affordable copies of his works, enabling working class people to own art which they proudly displayed above their mantelpieces. Works such as, Chinese Girl, The Dying Swan and Fighting Zebras have become a vital part of popular culture.

‘In many ways, Tretchikoff is a major figure in the history of South African and world art and ignoring him won’t make him go away. It’s about time that we gave him a critical look and reassessed his rightful place in our art history,’
Andrew Lamprecht –  The exhibition curator

This is a section from a large painting by Scrimgeour – Her work is so very beautiful and profound. One can easily see how arduous and pain staking it must have been to execute – and it’s not copied from a photograph! So I was told,by one of the fortunate Everard Read Gallery owners, David Tripp.

Yough! What a wonderful experience… am still in shock from the quantity of stunning art hanging on the walls by African artists & or African galleries.
Lovely friendly atmosphere – got a little too crowded for me at times…
Congratulations to organisers, great job and sponsors who paid for it!
Here are a few images I took with my phone.

Apologies to all for not putting your names or gallery names.
I will do my best to add captions later.
