Benefit for:

This workshop takes participants through the process of gathering community stories through a story circle exercise, developed by John O’Neal in the Free Southern Theater during the civil rights movement. The stories we tell will become the material for exploring the potential of puppets to embody these stories and the choices we have to give the stories voice. The focus of the workshop addresses how we can tell the story of someone else without “playing” that role, and without appropriating that culture. The process looks at song, movement, at the actor/puppet relationship, and at simultaneous scenes, among other techniques, to explore what makes the puppet a special medium for evoking testimony. Participants will work with Sandglass’ exercise puppets from day one, and with any objects or raw materials that seem appropriate on day two. Wear comfortable clothing in which you can move. There are no materials fees for this workshop and no pre-requisite skills necessary. Friday, January 19 at 4:00pm to 7 pm. Repeats Saturday, January 20 at 1 pm to 3:30pm
