Dec 12: Introduction to Shadow Puppets with Myra Su
An ancient form dating back thousands of years, Shadow Puppets tap into the magical and the primal. These cut-out-based flat puppets that rely on light, shadow and movement to “come to life” can be found in many cultures. In this Shadow Puppet workshop with Myra Su, she will be walking us through engineering expressive paper puppets using everyday recycled materials. She will be sharing techniques from her many years as a touring puppeteer with Manual Cinema, as well as from her most recent puppet film, GOODNIGHT SHADOW, that features articulated paper doll-like puppets. Together, we’ll explore both shadow puppets that focus on expressive silhouettes as well as paper puppets with hand drawn features.
Time/Day: Sunday, December 12, 12noon-2pm EDT, 9am-12noon PDT, 5-7pm UK
