Puppetry Performance for Beginners
10am-5pm, 3 Nov (Sat)
Discover the core principles of puppet manipulation through a practical and playful exploration of puppetry. This workshop is for anyone who has ever wanted to work with puppetry but felt unsure about where to start. You will explore some of the basic principles of puppetry; revealing how easy, how difficult and how joyful the process can be. If you have always wanted to work with a puppet in community projects, in outdoor theatre or experimental performance then this workshop is for you.
This workshop is led by Emma Williams, a freelance puppetry director. For the last nine years she has been Performance Director for The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama’s Design and Puppetry Production. Emma also makes outdoor, site-responsive performances with designer and puppet maker Mary Drummond.
This workshop will run from our rehearsal studio, lunch is included in the cost.
