Using Puppetry workshop
Harrogate Theatre Royal
Puppetry is truly magic. It captivates audience’s imaginations by allowing ordinary things to come alive and tell a story. This workshop is designed to inspire and invigorate all creative people, give you the tools to explore ways of using puppetry in your work or purely for therapeutic, playful purposes. We will learn manipulation techniques and allow everyday materials such as paper and plastic express themes that create powerful atmospheres. We will study the symbolic meaning behind the objects we choose and give them a voice. You will then practice the art of detailed tabletop puppetry movement, asking how our audience interprets narrative and finds escapism through skilful choreography.
