Announcement and Info
Our 2019 West Coast Collaborative Puppetry and Storytelling Conference was held from July 25, 2019 through July 30, 2019. People from near and far attended and the event was a great success! We are hoping you can join us in the beautiful Pacific Northwest again in 2021 for another exploration and deepening of our puppetry and storytelling pursuits.
In 2019, while exploring our theme of “Nurturing a Resilient Heart,” we also practiced working on elements of performance: Movement and gesture, color, lighting, voice, music, ways of staging, opening and closing a performance, polarities like tension and humor, courage and fear, pacing, turning story into script, etc. We were also busy making things for staging our puppet shows and stories: Natural dyeing of large scenery cloths, wet felting props and making colored transparency puppets.
Our wonderful teachers included Janene Ping, Jennifer Aguirre, Susan Strauss and others.
