Manipulate and Play

Liz Walker, Invisible Thread
Little Angel Theatre in association with London International Mime Festival

Saturday 20th January 2018

About the Workshop

Through simple led improvisations this workshop will cover the manipulation of materials, objects and 2 person articulated ‘Bunraku’ style puppets. It will explore objects as props and as characters and also ways of performing ie relationship between the performer, puppet and action.  There will also be an exploration of a short text and a visual response to it.

This class is for the enthusiastic student of visual theatre, professional or amateur, who has a keen interest in puppetry. As this is an active workshop students should wear loose fitting clothes and sensible shoes.
