We recently had the pleasure to make puppets with a whole gang of kids and their parents at Festival OUF the “off” Castelier Festival, which took place February 27th to March 6th 2016. What fun!
It was wonderful to see parents working creatively with their kids, and having adult supervision allowed us to welcome kids of many ages to our workshop (from 3 to about 30 years, in fact!). The simple cone puppets, who truly excel at playing peek-a-boo, were loved by all and transformed into glamorous ladies, mermaids, spies and superheroes. Not bad!
These puppets were based on a traditional structure, and here’s a little secret: we designed them to fit in with our upcoming production, Prince Dung Beetle! Stay tuned for Prince Dung Beetle at the Centaur Theatre Children’s Series at 10:30 am on Saturday April 9th.
