The Art of Puppetry - Making Magic in the Museum is an exhibition born out of a show at The Grange Gallery & Museum in 2015 called 'The Wonderful World of Puppetry'.
The Rottingdean Smugglers Puppet Theatre is on display at Hove Museum & Art Gallery as part of this exciting 6 month exhibition.
Co-ordinated by ZoneZine resident Amanda Rosenstein Davidson it features four large theatrical paintings based in and around the theatre and represents performance, ballet, circus and puppetry.
Philip Sugg's miniature pop-up theatres and his collaborative works with Amanda - mainly 'Rikki Tikki Tavi', as featured in The Kipling Festival and 'The Rottingdean Smugglers Play,' which has a written script and performance by Beccy Smith and Darren East of Touched Theatre, are also included in the exhibition.
Touched Theatre are based in Kemp Town and run puppetry workshops at the Copperdollar studio. They too are showing work created by Darren East for the Brunswick Festival and other projects.
Liza Stevens is a Newhaven based published children's book illustrator/author and has her Bluebeard characters on display.
Imogen Di Sapia of Bright Moon Theatre is displaying Baba Yaga & Vassilli the Brave which demonstrate her talent for folklore storytelling and textiles.
Rust and Stardust Company - Eleanor Conlon and Katie Sommers - are displaying their costumes and puppet characters from parts of their many shows.
The exhibition runs until November 30th.

The Grange, opposite Rottingdean pond, is a Georgian house originally built as a vicarage. It is now occupied by the village’s Art Gallery and Museum, the local library, and the official Visitor Information Point, where you can find information, leaflets and maps for Rottingdean and the surrounding areas. In the summer months the walled garden is open for morning coffee, afternoon tea and light lunches.
At the Museum you can find out more on the history of the village, its link to smugglers, and its many famous residents. There are permanent exhibitions to Rudyard Kipling and the pre-Raphaelite painter Edward Burne-Jones - just two of the celebrated writers and artists who came to live and work in the village during the early 20th century. Also associated with The Grange is renowned architect Sir Edwin Lutyens who redesigned the garden as you see it today.
During May each year, as part of the Brighton Festival, the Art Gallery has an ‘Artists’ Open House’ exhibition, and hosts events and talks for all ages, including children.
Throughout the rest of the year there are a number of changing exhibitions showcasing original paintings, photographs, sculptures, jewellery, glassware and ceramics by local artists.
