Our building, Unit 18, is full of brilliant artists and creatives working in puppetry, animation, film, visual arts, theatre, outdoor arts and creative technologies. You can find out more about them by looking at our Residents page. We are your one-stop shop for all things animated. If you have a question drop us a line or give us a call.
What Is Puppetry?
We define puppetry as follows: Bringing Life to the Inanimate.
Puppetry is an artform that strides across boundaries and gets under your skin. It is a powerful tool for self-expression and reconciliation and a vibrant performing artform. Its origins are ancient, often enshrined in religious ritual, yet its tendrils reach into the latest robotics and AI research.
We recognise these myriad forms in our work and artist support. This means we include stop-frame animation, filmed puppetry, object manipulation as well as bunraku-style, string and rod marionette, shadow puppetry, ventriloquism, glove puppetry, automata and robotics within the puppetry family.
