What is Object Theatre?

I use the term ‘object theatre’ as a shorthand to talk about the two aspects of art practice I am most interested in; objects as agents in performance and the term ‘theatre’ to mean theatrical as a form of affect. The types of practice that this can encompass is vast and although it is often used as a term to describe a category of puppetry, this site takes a much more expanded view on what object theatre might be and how the term can be useful to describe and frame a discourse around the use of objects in performance.
