Joly receiving the Erasmus Prize in 1978

Yves Joly (October 11, 1908 – May 24, 2013)[1] was a French puppeteer. Joly is recognized as an innovator in puppeteering, pioneering shows that used minimal paper marionettes,[2] or hands alone.[3][4] Joly received the Erasmus Prize in 1978 (along with Margareta Niculescu and Peter Schumann) for "reducing the puppet theatre to its simplest form".[5]
