Puppetry is the art of making puppets.
In this course students learn all about marionette making, puppets, masks and shadow puppets.
The target group is schools, students, university students or people who have an interest in traditional puppets and marionettes.
The course duration is a total of one year. It is designed for students to master all elements of puppet making and performing. It consists of 4 levels, each a duration of 3 months and is structured for students to complete a certain target at each level.
Level 1. Students learn about all kinds of puppetry and its contents. They create simple samples of each kind of puppet.
Level 2. Is to learn the basics of puppetry movement on stage and video. You will take a sample of one of the puppet types and work on it in a more elaborate way.
Level 3. The student choose one of the types and master it. This will be covered by learning how to direct a theatre with the puppets
Level 4. In this level the students have all the know-how of puppetry and are ready to do their own project, which can be in group work or as individuals
In the first month participants are given four lectures to learn the different types of puppetry in theory and practice. Half of the lecture consists of learning about puppetry models and the second hour and a half is for the implementation of one kind of puppet, such as masks.
The first month will involve case studies of favourite shows (e.g. the muppets) and students will be able to improve their sketching skills. 2 different types of puppetry can be mastered in the first level.
Progression onto the next levels means you can explore more complex puppetry skills such as shadow puppets and black theater.
