Two Forms of Puppetry: What are they?
The two forms of Puppetry: Ventriloquism and Puppeteering.
A ventriloquist doesn’t move his lips and is a belly talker using his voice box and abdominal muscles through the airway in the stomach to change voice tones. A puppeteer moves his lips and can work up front like a ventriloquist telling stories or hiding behind a prop to read off scripted lines.
