’SURPRISINGLY INSPIRING + HUGELY PLAYFUL – WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND!’
Puppets love to speak – to show off their unique voices, to tell stories and make their opinions heard!
This weekend course will explore techniques and processes for using text, and your voice, with puppets. We will cover vocal techniques and exercises; working with puppets to help them speak convincingly, and also to listen; and look at the more specialised working with lip-synch and moving-mouth puppets.
The course will give you confidence and skills in using your voice with your puppets, and lots of new ideas for using your puppets in different performance contexts.
Puppets will be available to use, but please bring any figures you would like to work with.
The course will be led by award-winning puppetry director and performer Darren East.
