Abstract

This article examines the related shadow puppet traditions of Turkey and Greece, karaguz and karagiozis respectively, relating them to Bakhtin's theories of carnivalistic performance. The author analyzes how these forms of shadow puppetry were used by various audience communities to negotiate and define cultural boundaries and senses of communal identity.
