The Humber College Puppetry Intensive is an exciting, vigorous, hands-on, 12 day training program in the art of puppet theatre. Taught by some of the best professional puppet artists in North America, this unique program offers students the opportunity to work with four professional artists from three distinct companies: Foreign Landscapes Productions, CLUNK Puppet Lab and Puppetmongers.
Day time curriculum activities focus on:
- The study of puppet manipulation; breath, voice, impulse, and movement
- Puppet construction; design, material and mechanisms.
- Performance creation explored in a puppet lab setting through collaboration in diverse ensemble groups, creating original and experimental material.
The result of this practice will culminate in short “works-in-progress” to be presented in front of an invited audience in our Black Box Theatre at the end of the intensive.
All classes will take place in the recently renovated, state-of-the-art facilities of the Humber College Arts and Media Studios, situated by beautiful lake Ontario parkland, the Historic Lakeshore Campus and a short streetcar/subway ride from the hustle and bustle of downtown Toronto.
The intensive will run from June 2nd to June 14th, 2014 with one day off half way through the program.
