Workshop Offerings

The Sense of the Puppet: Design

A design workshop given by Eric Bass which, from the perspective of creating a puppet, defines the differences between the actor and actor’s theater. In a three-hour class, students will explore lecture, discussion, demonstration, and their own drawings; and the reasons for and advantages of using puppets in theater. Emphasis is placed upon the use and understanding of metaphor as a theatrical device.

This workshop may be expanded into one in which actual puppets are made. This might be done in a week’s workshop, under the right conditions.

Recommended for high school and college students. Maximum 20 students per workshop.

The Soul of the Puppet: Manipulation

A performing workshop conducted by Eric Bass in which actors’ training techniques are carried over into the puppet, and then differentiated from the way in which an actor would use them. Emphasis is placed upon breathing disciplines and improvisation. The class will use puppets especially designed for the original exercises in which they will participate. This class may be taken in a three-hour lecture-demonstration form, a one-week intensive, or a longer (two- to four-week) version.

Recommended for high school and college students. Maximum 20 students per workshop.
