Found Object Puppetry with Ingrid Hansen of SNAFU Dance Theatre, Victoria
What the heck is a puppet? Any inanimate object you can bring to life. This workshop will investigate the fundamentals of found-object puppetry, or bringing life to ordinary household objects.
The key is to see the potential in all things. There will be an emphasis on courage, breath, movement, creative abandon, and fun. No performance experience necessary.
