Satyagraha

We finally went to see Eno’s performance of Satyagraha! For me the best bit of the show was the puppets and how they were set up. The performers would take what looked like trash or discarded wood from the sides of the stage and then they would arrange them together in such a way that they turned into working, gigantic puppets. It was really cool to see this kind of performative puppet movement, and the potential of ‘animation’ in a different setting than a screen. There were also animated words and projections that interacted with the backdrop, again displaying the possibilities that come with bringing animation into a physical space; but for me the puppets were definitely the highlight of the show.
