It is remarkable how many things that Gross writes about puppets echo, with varying resonances, Grotowski's views: the idea that actors are like puppets, allowing themselves (or others) to animate their bodies with passions and gestures not their own; the observation that the puppeteer's hands, like the hands of "a sculptor, musician, juggler, surgeon, and lover" (56), align the puppet theater not with woodenness but corporeality; the proposal that the puppet theater is "the closest thing we have in the ordinary human world to the transmigration of the soul from one body to another"(7); the reminder that in many places outside Europe, the puppeteer functions as "a kind of shaman or priest, responsible not only for his own heart but for the heart of the community"(132).
