Part of Brighton Puppetry School’s Quixotic Circus
13 & 14 July / Evenings / 7-9pm on Zoom / £75
Over two evenings, we will explore a series of puppet circus acts, and this way learn some of the fundamental skills of puppetry: focus, breath, weight, emotions… and tightrope walking.
You can use any puppets made for the Circus, or any other puppets you have, but the exercises have also been adapted to work with some ordinary household objects, too (we’ll send you a list in advance).
No experience necessary – the course will introduce the ways of bringing puppets and objects to life, to start to develop meaningful manipulation that is expressive and emotionally truthful.
Suitable for anyone interested in working with puppets – actors who want to add skills; playworkers, teachers, therapists and anyone interested in using puppets in other contexts; beginners who are intrigued by the possibilities of puppetry; or more experienced performers looking for a refresher on the key skills.
