Storytelling and Puppets: Telling the Stuff of Living

duration 1 week
fee EUR 500

“It matters what stories we tell to tell other stories with; it matters what concepts we think to think other concepts with.” ~ Donna Haraway

This workshop is an exploration into the capacious possibilities that story has to offer us and how we might bring them into our bodies, into the space and alive through puppets. With myth and fairytale, paintings and poetry as our starting points, we will work with archetypal movements and images and with the poetic body. We will take the opportunity that puppets offer us: the invitation to make the object into a subject. To dive deeper into multiple subjectivities, multiple perspectives of the same story, to uncover multiplicitous stories. Perhaps we will find some new kinds of stories or new ways of telling stories, ways that we might urgently need in the world in which we are living.

Times: 10.00-16.00 ( inclusive of a 60-minute break )
