The Girl Giant Reappears

The Girl Giant was the very first marionette that Jesse and I built for this project, all the way back October of last year. We were lucky enough to have the help of Lydia Lorrain, animator and miniaturist extraordinaire, as we stumbled our way through the building process. Lydia sculpted the head and hands of the Girl Giant puppet, Jesse built the body, and I made the costume, so it was definitely a collaborative effort!

We told the Girl Giant’s story in our initial short showings last fall, and she has made a reappearance this spring as part of the cast of Hans Dudldee and Other Forgotten Fairytales. This time I got to be the puppeteer, which was a bit stressful at first. She is a lot of fun to play with though, and I’ve started to get the hang of her bouncing walk. We’ve learned a lot in the process of making her and working with her in performance, and I’m sure she’ll continue to appear in our upcoming work!
