Led by Curious School of Puppetry’s Sarah Wright this workshop in performing with puppets will explore the different ways in which an object or figure can be brought to life through:
• Breath and a sense of being
• Focus and eye-line
• Moving with impulse and gravity
From everyday materials to three-person figures we will consider operating techniques, character tempo and how to communicate narrative through movement. We will see how puppets can imitate reality and discover the extraordinary other worlds they can lead us to!
The workshop is open to all enthusiasts, artists and theatre makers, whatever your puppetry experience. Designed to offer an open door to beginners, for actors/dancers to experiment in a new form and to offer emerging puppeteers further training and engagement with the profession.
Sarah’s puppetry performance work includes Kneehigh’s The Tin Drum, Dead Dog in a Suitcase and (with Little Angel Theatre) A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings.
Adults 18+ years
Please wear comfortable clothes for movement.
Curious School of Puppetry will run a 7-week full-time course at The Poly from the 27th Jan to the 14th March 2020.
