Are you passionate about the art of puppetry? Are you keen to develop and sharpen your intuitive sense of the dynamic relationship between body and object? Are you ready to grow in leaps and bounds in the creation practices of this expressive art form?
The Humber College Puppetry Intensive is an exciting, vigorous, hands-on, 12-day training program in the art of puppet theatre. It is designed to introduce you to all of the basics of puppetry from manipulation and construction to design and performance creation.
The Intensive is for puppeteers, visual artists, composers, teachers, writers, performers, designers, dancers, technicians, or anyone interested in integrating puppetry into their creative practice.
The Intensive curriculum focuses on:
• The study of puppet manipulation; breath, voice, impulse, and movement.
• Puppet construction; design, material and mechanisms.
• Performance creation explored in a puppet lab setting through collaboration in diverse ensemble groups, creating original and experimental material.
• The business of puppetry; grants, fundraising, publicity and promotion. Our successful Networking Night will be open to all Intensive participants.
The result of this practice will culminate in short “works-in-progress” to be presented in front of an invited audience in our Black Box Theatre at the end of the intensive.
