Workshops

Meetings with the public to make and manipulate wood puppets

Entering the magical world of puppetry, a multidisciplinary art that touches on writing, acting, music and fine arts, allows to free expression, develop an imagination and express it.

Each participant makes a puppet from various recycled materials. The emphasis is on expressiveness, lightness and manoeuvrability. An introduction to the puppeteer's game and a demonstration of the work carried out with the characters can be scheduled in the final sessions.

Meetings with families to make, manipulate and create a papier mâché puppet show.

The children first choose which type of character to build: animal or human. Then, with recycled materials, they model, decorate and dress the hobbyists to finally manipulate them behind a castelet through improvisation exercises. Workshop can be carried out in 1, 2 or 3 sessions depending on the number of participants.
