About: The Sum of the Whole
Participants will discover puppetry as a powerful theatrical device, exploring the relationship between puppet and puppeteer and how the use of space, text and sound can shape a dynamic and compelling performance experience.
Over five days, Neville will guide the group through exercises exploring:▪ The role of puppeteer as performer
▪ Puppeteer and puppet relationship - who serves who?
▪ How the manipulation of the puppet affects the audience
▪ The “body language” of the puppet and that of the puppeteer
▪ Choreography, breath, and use of space
Throughout the masterclass, participants will work individually and in small groups to develop short scenes, building towards more complex work integrating space, text, and sound.
For professional and emerging puppeteers, theatre-makers, and all performing artists interested in exploring puppetry in performance.
