This workshop will immerse you in contemporary shadow puppetry methods and technology, and take you on a brief visit to the living traditions of shadow puppetry around the world.
It will be a hands-on workshop, focusing on the use of shadow in theatrical work: as fabricated actors, as powerful images, and as kinetic set design. In this class, you will design and build your own shadow puppets, explore a number of manipulation techniques and light sources, and start to develop a short piece of theatre.
David Powell, the other co-founder of Puppetmongers, has been involved with all levels of production: design, scripting, construction, marketing, touring, performing and admin. With Puppetmongers, he has created eleven new theatre works, toured extensively nationally and internationally, and received awards from both the theatre and puppetry communities in Canada and the USA.
