 Are you looking to enhance your puppetry performance skills? Are you interested in gaining experience working with an ensemble? Puppet Kitchen Productions is excited to announce its upcoming Collaborative Characters Master Class: an Introduction to Ensemble Manipulation

The class will be taught by Puppet Kitchen Chef, Eric Wright, and is based on training Mr. Wright received from puppet artist Dan Hurlin at Sarah Lawrence College.

No previous experience required.

This Master Class will be taught in two parts:

Part 1: “Puppet Creation” Saturday, Nov, 5th 2pm-6pm

Begin creating your Bunraku characters in groups of three using the crumpled paper technique. Discover how shape and form strongly influence movement and character.

Part 2: “Storytelling & Performance” Sunday, Nov. 6th 2pm-6pm

Begin bringing life to your puppets in the Bunraku 3-puppeteer style, learning how to complete a variety of physical feats. The class will culminate in a sharing of short, non-verbal scenes developed by each trio.
