Tabletop Puppetry is a day-long master class for performers, visual artists or anyone else eager to dip their toes into the thrilling water of puppetry. Throughout the day, you will explore the fundamentals of puppetry performance and manipulation.
By working in small teams, you’ll learn the basics of what it takes to give life to a performance object: breath, focus, physics, and play. By the end, you will have devised and staged a short, original piece of puppet theater.
Space is limited. Email classes@roughhousetheater.
The darkest days of the year surround us – the harsh Chicago winds spin snow into our homes and our hearts, and from the snowbanks and early nightfall our puppet friends crawl to greet us. Let this winter be Nasty! Let it be Brutish! And please, let it be Short!
