Actor Training Through Puppetry
Taught by Brendan McMurtry-Howlett

In-person at Puppetmongers’ studio – April 23rd – 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 1 day for $100

When working with puppets, the performer must be simultaneously “in it”, and observing. This is what makes puppetry a great actor training tool. Working with the key principles of puppetry (breath, movement, impulse work, and finding energized relaxation), we’ll explore how techniques can inform your work as an actor, and how acting techniques can inform puppetry.

What to bring: Comfortable clothes and footwear for movement. A short piece of memorized text or monologue (classical or contemporary).

Brendan is a theatre artist who has worked across the country and internationally. Introduced to puppetry 20 years ago, Brendan continues to incorporate puppetry into his theatre work as a director/creator. He created Macbeth: Walking Shadows for Shakespeare in the Ruff, and will direct the Shaw Festival’s upcoming Christmas Carol.
