Ishara Puppet Theatre Trust
In 1986, Dadi D Pudumjee established the Ishara Puppet Theatre and has helped contemporary puppetry gain legitimacy as an art form in India. The Ishara Puppet Theatre Trust is one of India’s major puppet theatre trusts, working with modern, traditional puppet companies and individuals. The aims of the trust are upgrading performance skills, creating opportunities of collaborations and putting puppet groups and puppeteers together both in India and abroad. The trust creates new performances with its own company, breaking ground in puppetry both for the Indian and International puppet theatre world.
