MEDIA REVIEWS

'In American Puppet Modernism, Bell presents a wide-ranging history of puppets and performing objects within a US socio-political context, contributing new insight into, and detailed analysis of, their roles in US society and theatre history. He simultaneously investigates and re-thinks the role of material objects on stage and in popular culture.' - Alissa Mello, Platform
