Illusion is the stock and trade of performers like Matt and Sarah Cotten, who have embraced puppetry as an art form of drama, comedy, and theatre. As the puppetry troupe Puppets Amongus, they build puppets, perform regularly and involve themselves with instructing students in the art of puppetry--all with the intention, they say, of reviving the tradition of storytelling through puppets.
