MOVING OBJECTS... a movement class for puppeteers


January 3 - 4, 2015

Manipulating puppets requires an understanding not only of how a puppet moves, but how you the performer move in service to that puppet. Find your vertical core, drop your weight and be ready to move in this movement workshop for puppeteers. With simple objects, we'll discover the fundamental elements of rhythm, dynamics and breath to transform anything into a puppet. You'll use your limbs in partnership with one another as opposed to as one block. You'll become a more powerful and centered performer onstage, able to direct audience focus to either your puppet or yourself.

This class is for puppeteers or dancers, actors, performers who would like to add puppetry to their skill set. Students must be over 18. Limited to 12 students.
