Storytelling through Puppetry and Object Manipulation with Amy Moule.
One man's junk is another man's treasure, so the saying goes. In this workshop we will be transforming, manipulating and playing with everyday objects, junk and bits and bobs to create unique stories, characters, worlds and moments of wonder.
Participants will learn basic puppetry skills, object manipulation and ways of weaving this type of work into their scene work. There will be a sense of group creation in some moments and therefore a need to develop and hone skills in the whole body listening. Participants will be able to create characters, environments, and worlds to enable their stories and scenes to come alive in a way we don’t often see in ‘regular’ improvisation.
*Please note this will not be using pre-made puppets or traditional puppets but learning to animate objects through puppeteering.
Pre-requisite skills required: Completion of Impro Melbourne's Spontaneity, Narrative Technique, Scene Work, & Character workshops or equivalent improvisation and performance skills. Please contact email@example.com to check if required.
