Disturbing puppet theater

Extremely talented performer in Austria, Neville Tranter. Puppets and themes are gruesome but wickedly sardonic. His style is guignol. In this video, he lampoons the nazis and in particular here, Goering. Watch here.

About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    A new form of puppetry for me. I remember what we were shown of Goering many years ago, and the image presented is not too far of, nor is that of Goebbels. I have difficulty with reference to the name “Schicklgruber”, whether in any way applicable or not, for it led many to hate Hitler, not because he was anti-Semitic, but because he may have been partly Semitic. By the way, I believe AH died happily of old age in Argentina. From Eva Braun to Eva Peron.

    The third from the last word of the second line of my comment should be “off”; that error got by both my editors and yours.
    I believed the charred remains version of Hitler, but I have recently read of AH’s leaving Germany with gold via submarine with the help of Martin Bormann.
