Venue:
Coopers' Loft
Price:
£80
Duration:
2 days (10am – 5pm each day)

This two-day workshop explores how puppetry and words can combine as tools for powerful story-telling. We will experiment with how puppets and objects might speak- looking at voice over, narration, dialogue, the inner voice and found sound. We will see how stories, words and poetry can be the genesis of devising for character and scenes, then disappear.

Physical Narrative for Puppetry

with Liz Walker and Sarah Wright
Venue:
Coopers' Loft
Price:
£80
Duration:
2 days (10am – 5pm each day)

In this two-day workshop Liz Walker (Faulty Optic, Invisible Thread) and Sarah Wright explore with you the development of narrative through puppet movement, character development, scale and action, focusing on the visual rather than the spoken word. Because emphasis is on movement and character there will also be exercises focusing on puppet manipulation and working closely with others. 

Small worlds will be created and strange stories developed through structured improvisations using materials, two-person puppets, objects and a mixture of all.
