PUPPET TUESDAY My intention for Puppet Tuesday was to share the work of other puppeteers, past or present, be it a performance I’ve seen or just an image in a book that has thrilled me. Today, a timely revisiting of a piece that truly changed my life. In 1964, Burr Tillstrom (1917-1985), already famous for his beloved Kukla, Fran and Ollie television show, created a hand ballet, The Berlin Wall, for That Was The Week That Was, and for which he won an Emmy. When I attended my first Puppeteers of America festival in 1973, Burr was a guest of honour and performed this piece live. To an awkward puppet-mad teenager, it was a revelation, one of those magical “aha!” moments. I can only post a minute of it here, but the entire clip is on YouTube. No doubt we’ll hear about a different wall again today, so, sadly, this tiny powerful personal bare hand work is still as relevant and necessary as it was 55 years ago. So, Puppet Tuesday...who inspires you? #puppettuesday #burrtillstrom #theberlinwall #handballet #puppetry #puppeteer #puppeteersofamerica #puppeteersofamericafestival #instapuppet #legendsofpuppetry #kuklafranandollie #puppethistory #knowwhereyoucomefrom #knowyourhistory #whoinspiresyou #gayartist #gaylegend #artwithpurpose #fuckthewall #fuckwalls #ourbeautifulpuppethistory

Because it’s both Puppet Tuesday AND World Ballet Day, a fave photo of 19 year old Burr Tillstrom (1917-1985) performing his finger puppet ballerina (and that pretty great elephant) at the American Puppetry Conference in Cincinnati, 1937. The previous year, Burr created what was to become his most famous puppet, a character who remained unnamed until the famous ballerina Tamara Toumanova (1919-1996) exclaimed “kukla!” (Russian for “doll”) upon seeing him. The rest is history, and Burr, along with Kukla, Fran and Ollie, went on to become beloved superstars of television’s early days. . . #puppettuesday #worldballetday #worldballetday2018 #puppethistory #burrtillstrom #kukla #kuklafranandollie #puppetry #puppeteer #puppeteersofamerica #ourbeautifulpuppethistory #thatpaisleytiethough #queericons #instagay
