From sock puppets to giant puppets: building characters, telling stories, and performing arts

In this week-long camp, we’ll explore the creative world of puppetry. We’ll start small: trying our hand at telling stories with our own sock puppets, shadow puppets, cone puppets, rod puppets and marionettes. We’ll design and construct our own characters, working with a range of materials and found objects to bring them to life, and building sets, props, and mini-installations. We’ll also dive into the art of storytelling: learning to tell stories through plays and scriptwriting, playing acting and improv games, practicing with sound effects and voice-acting, and creating our own spectacles and original performances. Over the course of the week our projects will grow in size, as we design and construct giant puppets and masks that we can wear and parade through the city.
