Workshop: Paper-Made Bunraku with Lost&Found Puppet Co (Beaver Dreams)

Lost & Found Puppet Co.
120min

Bunraku is a traditional form of puppetry from Japan, in which a human figure is manipulated by 3 puppeteers. One manipulates the head and arm, another the torso and arm, the third the feet. Together, through the intuitive movements of all 3 puppeteers working together, the puppet is brought to life with superb specificity. In this workshop, students will create a neutral looking human figure made out of crushed paper and masking tape. Then they will group into threes and experiment with making the puppet come alive with breath, emotion, physicality, and storytelling.
