The Fuss About a Ballet Dancer | What's Happening In the Restoration Workshop?
Exhibition The Fuss About a Ballet Dancer with the subtitle What's Happening In the Restoration Workshop? was created as an accompanying exhibition for a new part of the permanent exhibition of the Chrudim Puppetry Museum, which will present the most precious exhibit of the museum, the marionette of the Dancer attributed to the legendary painter Edgar Degas. This puppet, as well as several others from the Nabots Theatre in Paris, were bought by the museum in an auction in 2014. Unfortunately, despite its historical value, this collection was in a very poor condition and the return of rare puppets to life required nearly two years of demanding work by museum restorers. The purpose of the newly opened exhibition is to bring the rescue process closer and allow visitors to try some of the activities themselves.
