In this practical (and in person!) course Jimmy will take you through the key principles that guide my approach when training puppeteers and directing or performing puppetry.
You'll spend 4 days practicing and discussing a whole range of styles; from simple one-person and table-top performance, to larger multi-puppeteer challenges and improvising as part of a puppet team.
He'll share with you the process he's developed for training puppeteers for work on stage, as well as focus on principles of animation and movement that apply for storytelling and performance on screen.
This course is ideal for actors, directors, writers, puppeteers and other creatives, teachers or students interested in puppetry within a professional performance context. Suitable for ages 18 years +
Dates: 2nd, 3rd, 4th & 5th August (10am - 5pm)
