CREATE A SOLO PUPPET ACT

5-week workshop

If you think you're ready to create a solo act...

I'll give you the support & structure you need

to create a solo act,

whether you are a complete beginner or a puppeteering pro.

 

 

Fear of performing is real.

 

Believe me, I've was terrified in the beginning.

And it's especially HARD to create an act when it's just you making the thing!

By the end of this course you'll feel confident in your act and in your ability to perform solo.

This course is about getting it done, perfect or not.

Here's how it works:

We'll talk about good writing and storytelling, creating your characters and we'll discuss the question - why puppets?  We'll go over styles of puppetry.

You'll come up with an outline for your act based on the framework provided and will start to practice in your chosen style of puppetry!

You will submit video of your performance to me. I'll provide resources for submitting to puppet slams and shows.

What you get from this workshop:

  • A new solo puppetry act that you can do on stage or for online shows.

  • framework to use for creating acts, over and over again.

  • Videos, handouts, and resources from each class.

  • private facebook group for support from fellow students.

  • Resources for submitting your act to shows.

  • Written feedback from me after your performance.

A solo act in your back pocket is a game changer.

You can do it anywhere

and you will have it forever.

Create a new act for adults, kids, or just yourself.
