In the Manifesto show at HOW Art Museum, the puppeteer starred by Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett left a profound impression to the audience. Delicate and special puppets in the movie bring the people into a dreamland of super realism.
Inspired by it, our first family workshop has specially invited professional puppet teacher from Shanghai Theatre Academy to join us. Children are exposed to wonderful puppet knowledge, performance and even can experience making puppets by their own.
Which kind of puppet show that children find the most interesting since there are so many types of it? The term of “object drama” appears to be esoteric. So it would be better to let kids involved in the performance. How to use the simplest materials in the surrounding and set up family theater to tell stories with puppets? What does puppeteer do in the reality? There will be an exclusive sharing from puppet drama teacher in this workshop. Under the guidance of YIN Wuwei, teacher from Shanghai Theater Academy, children can learn funny knowledge about modern creative puppet drama in this coincidental and creative puppet theater workshop and experience diversified activities in a series of creation.
The workshop includes performance, presentation skills, creation and exchange. Happy and challenging teamwork is also an important section. Teacher will help children to obtain confidence and sense of accomplishment while motivating their creativity.
