PUPPETRY

Puppetry involves the design, making and operation of puppets in a variety of performing arts contexts. These skills will be developed through exposure to puppetry across the theatre and film industry as well as various cultural traditions. Participants will be introduced to the vast array of puppet types -marionettes, rod puppets, hand puppets, finger puppets, giant puppets, shadow puppets, and other traditional forms of puppetry – eg: bunraku, moteka, marotte, etc.as research and inspiration for designing and building their own puppets to operate in performance during the year.

The program will involve:

•Immersion into the rich and varied colourful world of puppets!

•Puppet design – Inspired by exposure to the spectrum of puppet types, students decide upon a kind of puppet they wish to build and perform

•Puppet building – Students will gain an understanding of materials and methods appropriate to the construction of the different puppet types

•Puppet operation – Performing a puppet in a professional theatre environment

•Workplace safety – using real life experiences to develop awareness of safe work practices

•Creative expression- the students bring their own creative flair through design, creation, storytelling, and performance of their puppets

Collaboration – there is potential for otherYour DNA programs to require a puppet to be built for their theatre or film show. This provides the opportunity for participants to operate as consultants for these programs, gathering information from their ‘clients’ requirements, planning and delivering on the contract.
