- PUPPETRY FROM WHAT'S ON HAND, Thursday, July 28th at 2482 Maynard Street
- ALL WE NEED IS...STICKS & BLANKETS, Friday, July 29th at 2177 Gottingen Street
PUPPETRY FROM WHAT'S ON HAND DESCRIPTION:
If this memory were a thing, what thing would it be? If this thing were a person, who would it be? A bunch of forks, a canoe, a rabbit’s skin, a potato and a poutine: how does this breathe, talk walk, sing and dance? What story does this object have to tell us and how can we help? Where has it been, what is it looking for, and who will join with it? Can we echo each others voices? Can we mimic each other's characters? What kind of looking glass has two eyes, two ears, two feet, one heart, and maybe swims and flies and spreads like thunder and wags its tail and leaves a slime trail?
Come and learn memory, observation, and connection through object theatre games.
By animating ordinary objects, we will become extraordinary visual storytellers!
This workshop is excellent for shy, neuro-atypical, and body self-conscious kids, as well as the show-stopping showboats!
ALL WE NEED IS...STICKS & BLANKETS DESCRIPTION:
Using deep play tactics, or some theatre games with sticks and wool blankets, this workshop explores identity (sticks), Land (blankets), and how we share these things (play games!) There will be instructions, but there is no right or wrong way to play these games, as we enter into an imaginary space to tell some stories together: what will we see, hear, and say?
Go as deep into your imagination as you like, or sit and watch!
Come and learn about embodied memories, direct observation, emergence, and being gentle and clear, through games designed to let everyone teach at once.
