Intensive Workshop: Puppet Theatre and Improvisation
Workshop at Det Andre Teatret
Det Andre Teatret and UNIMA present a one-week intensive workshop in puppet theatre and improvisation for professional puppeteers, actors and improvisers, running from 4th to 8th November at Det Andre Teatret. The course is as much an introduction to improvising with puppet theatre as it is an introduction to improvisation for puppeteers. Together we will explore how to improvise with puppets and objects, and the course will conclude with a Puppet Slam on the evening of November 8th.
Supported by Arts Council Norway / Norsk Kulturråd.
