E2: OBJECT, UNIVERSE & LIFE IN PERFORMANCE
Merlin Puppet Theatre
Monday 8th - Tuesday 9th April 2019
10am - 5pm daily
Ages 18+ / adults
An approach to all three basic elements that contribute to making a complete visual universe - Object, Universe and Life. OBJECT - puppet, mask, shadows; UNIVERSE - scenography, light and sound; LIFE - how these elements become animate. An exploratory laboratory, which examines through analysis, practice and experimentations, how a harmonious puppetry performance is created. Through improvisations and research on stage individually and in groups, participants will work on how to develop and realise an idea, all the way from scratch to the final desirable result. See here for Merlin Puppet Theatre's show at the festival, "Noone's Land".
The Magical Paper Theatre
Being a cultural icon and one of the most re-imagined characters in children's literature, Pinocchio is coming alive one more time with paper & wooden characters in a Victorian Paper Theatre. Follow the adventures of Pinocchio, the mischievous puppet and teller of tall tales, as he follows his dreams to become a real boy. After the show, the audience is invited 'backstage' for a tour to meet the puppets and see how the crankie-style theatre actually works.
