Signs of Life (Workshop)
The Curious School of Puppetry11 Jan 10.30am
This practical course explores the concept of puppet as 'alive' and shows how any object, figure or material that moves in such a way that we perceive it to have thoughts, feelings and objectives will appear to have a life of its own.
Participants will explore more complex emotions than we normally expect from puppets, expand their emotional vocabulary by interpreting abstract movement and will learn to use rhythm, gesture, breath, spatial relationship, looks and reactions to articulate the object's thoughts and feelings.
Dates: Sat 11-Sun 12 Jan
Times: 10.30am - 6pm
Venue: Jacksons Lane, Space 5 (Saturday), Studio 1 (Sunday)
