LOCATION: Watford, Connecticut USA
PRESENTED: Wunderkammer - Eugene O'Neill National Puppetry Conference 2014
SKILLS: Puppetry manipulation, Devising
This series of workshops and public public performances developed my skills in marionette manipulation, ensembel performance and expanded my understanding of the art form towards exploring ways to develop string puppetry based on the studies by Albrecht Roser. The workshops were run by Alice Therese Gottschalk and Ralph Mürle with musician Bradley Kemp.
For eight days each summer, puppet artists have the opportunity to explore various performance styles through rehearsals and workshops on writing, music, marionettes, and more. Puppet artists also have the option to gather before the main conference for three days of intensive workshops. The main conference culminates with two public performances, featuring new works which explore the extraordinary range and power of the puppet.
In 2014 I was recipient of the Terry & Taylor Fator Scholarship enabling me to attend the conference.
