If you book both workshops on all three days – the workshop “PUPPETS!“ (Friday evening and Saturday) and the workshop „MONOSCENES“ (Sunday) – it will cost 250 euros.
After building our own puppets on Friday evening we will bring them to play with us on stage on Saturday. As both a puppeteer and a storyteller Amy is constantly fascinated by the endless possibilities of object manipulation and its use within improvisation. She will be guiding participants through the basics of puppetry and puppetry performance but in a way that allows creative freedom for all, as there will be no pre- fabricated puppets in use – characters will be made and created in the moment!
This workshop will challenge participants to think outside the box of usual storytelling. Participants will learn basic puppetry skills, object manipulation and ways of weaving this type of work into their scenework. Participants will be able to create characters, environments and worlds to enable their stories and scenes to come alive in a way we don’t often see in ‘regular’ improvisation.
This type of work will help participants to listen with all their senses. Plus it is lots of fun. It will push your limits of imagination, assumption and preconceived ideas of objects, when we use them to create unique stories, characters, worlds and moments of wonder.
About Amy Moule
As a Puppeteer and Improviser, Amy is eager to work with others to combine these two passions. There is such joy to be found in watching ordinary bits and pieces being transformed into characters and world’s and stories being created in front of your very eyes. Like mask work, working with puppets allows performers create a character which extends beyond their usual go-to character’s and beyond their human form.
