"In CPT, there's no use of "props", that is, things that are functionalized that add to a given "narrative". Instead, objects are treated in their own right. From their actual material capacity (ductility, resonating qualities, etc) to their social symbolic meaning. The objects are treated repeatedly -- in different instances -- with different actions -- independent of the text; but still, objects are conceived of as being aggregative to the over-arching event (including the text)" -- RT
