Welcome to Animations Online...

...the online magazine run by
the Puppet Centre Trust. PCT is a development agency to advocate, support and advance England's puppetry and related theatre forms. Animations Online is a voice for contemporary puppetry and related theatre forms offering discussion and debate on recent puppet-theatre events, reviews, news from the puppet community and a forum for those interested in puppetry in all its forms to exchange ideas and debate developments. Animations Online aims to represent the full spectrum of professional practice, from traditional puppetry to experimental visual theatre using puppetry or animation, and we look forward to hearing your news, views and suggestions for future content.
The Puppet Centre Trust website and Animations Online are undergoing a redevelopment process. The current e-dition of Animations covers the Summer 2005 period. Animations will be re-launched in the autumn and the deadline for items for the next issue is 1 September 2005, to cover events and projects from October to December 2005.
