Does puppet theatre help us understand our world? Artists Alice Nelson, Alain Moreau, Kenn McLeod & Chrystene Ells answer how a puppet, with a brain of fluff or wood, plays a role in sociology, psychology, and other ‘ologies’.
Brave, sleep-deprived panellists Peter Balkwill (Famous Puppet Death Scenes / Trunk Puppet), Berny Hi (Prairie Puppet Underground), Sandra Lamouche (Sagowsko), Rowan Pantel (Prairie Puppet Underground), and Alice Nelson will face a challenge.
Learn techniques on giving life and character to a puppet, how to represent feelings, and how to make a puppet breathe. Magali will talk about her influences and creative process, leading participants through a playful workshop on puppet manipulation.
With only newspaper and masking tape, learn to build a puppet and how to move it with sensitivity, then bring it to life through a short story.
This hands-on workshop takes you through a simple green screen shoot, including footage upload, green screen removal, and superimposing puppets into far-out environments.
After viewing In the Workshop, flock to the Legion, grab a set of carving tools to begin sculpting your own puppet under Tof Theatre’s guidance.
