Introduction to puppetry and visual theatre

This workshop will introduce you to the skills that form the core of the Society’s work; the techniques that we use to bring a puppet to life in performance. With a focus on poetic illusion, we introduce the elements of focus, breath and gravity in a series of training exercises using brown paper.
