BDC Summer workshop 2018:
AGES 7-11 & 12-18
($75 discount if taken with Circus Arts for a full-day workshop)
Puppetry - like dance - can tell wonderful stories through movement alone. I love to create new puppetry pieces by mining music for narrative, character, and aesthetic. Come make something new with me through movement, music, and puppet playtime. We'll make puppets with simple materials and found objects, and learn how to move them with one, two, three (or more!) puppeteers on each puppet. We'll tell old stories and new, imagine together, and have a great time.
