Handmade Puppet Dreams Vol. 1 - screening
September 25, 2010
Puppet Showplace Theatre is kicking off its Adult programming season with a special screening of "Handmade Puppet Dreams", a touring festival of short puppet films, selected and curated by Heather Henson. The screening will be preceded by a one-of-a-kind, puppets-on-video workshop led by local puppeteer Jonathan Little of Little's Creatures.
"Handmade Puppet Dreams" is an eclectic collection produced by independent, contemporary artisans — films from a new generation of puppeteers who embrace the medium in expressing their art. The screening is sure to be the perfect introduction (or refresher) to the wide-ranging art of puppets on film.
Jonathan Little of Little's Creatures will lead a one-and-a-half hour workshop on do-it-yourself video puppetry and the basics of performing for video, including monitor technique.
The workshop is from 6pm - 7:30pm. Workshop fee is $5. "Handmade Puppet Dreams" begins at 8pm. Tickets are $12. Attend both and save! Combination workshop/screening tickets are just $15!
