Weekend 13 & 14 May 2017 / £95 / PERFORMING
A weekend to explore 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 lipsynch 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.
Participants will be asked to come with a short piece of text memorised for use in some exercises (this can be anything you like: a poem, a play speech, prose).
The course will be led by Darren East.
