SANDGLASS THEATER PRESENTS: Bringing Puppets to Life
A puppetry workshop led by Shoshana Bass
This workshop is for people interested in what brings a puppet to life, basic mechanics of operating a one-person or three-person style of puppet, and insights into the art form in its application to making theatrical choices. This workshop will give you an introduction to Sandglass’ approach to puppetry training and invites fun hands-on exploration with exercise puppets designed for training puppeteers. This class is appropriate for all levels and does not require any previous experience in puppetry or performance. Wear clothes you can move in.
