Bunraku is a traditional form of puppetry from Japan, in which a human figure is manipulated by 3 puppeteers. One manipulates the head and arm, another the torso and arm, the third the feet. Together, through the intuitive movements of all 3 puppeteers working together, the puppet is brought to life with superb specificity. In this introductory workshop, participants will create a neutral looking human figure made out of crushed paper and masking tape. In groups of threes, they will make the puppet come alive with breath, emotion, physicality, and storytelling.
