Strings and Yarns


This performance from the puppetry course at The Central School of Speech and Drama explores the potential for animation within archaeology, through intense exploration of form, structure and movement.  The puppet on stage becomes the point of narration through its interaction with and exploration of its surroundings.  The project includes marionette, illusion, transformation, shadow and light.  Devised through collaborative work, the puppeteers have developed a series of mini-narratives ranging from the grotesque to the tragicomic as the puppet meets its own structural limits and possibilities.
