PAPERS ENTRE LES MANS

Puppet construction workshop

By Jordi Bertran
Price 10 €/hour
Data

Coming Soon

Opening hours 16:00 a 20:00 h.
Limited Places 10 students

Objectives
  • Build a puppet and learn from him handling techniques and interpretation.
Contents
  • With newspaper, masking tape and fabric pieces, build a character. Without a predetermined idea, let flow a dialogue between the material and our hands. A fascinating experience that is felt at various stages of the process, is the puppet who manipulates us and leads us in ways and forms that we had not imagined. Once the form, we will color the technique of makeup. Finally, if you think fit, it adds a cloth.
  • In the second part of the workshop, give life to our character, and analyze their character through play, movement and improvisation, create situations, conflicts and outcomes, developing structures within the dramatic language, own puppet theater.
  • Students will be able to create, individually or collectively, a brief performance.
