For every group, the workshop will happen throughout six hour-long classes (digital and in-person), and can culminate in a last filmed efficiency.

After receiving an exercise equipment with primary supplies, a brief description of the play, and an overview of the scene the group can be staging, contributors will construct a tabletop puppet character for the play tailored from a narrative a couple of fisherman and magic fish!

In the course of the first classes (through Zoom), contributors will obtain directions on constructing their puppets. Extra directions can be accessible on this weblog in order that contributors will have the ability to proceed constructing between scheduled conferences. In the course of the third and fourth digital classes, the members of six ensembles will begin studying methods to give life to their characters; they are going to play and improvise the scenes from the play.

The penultimate classes can be dedicated to rehearsing the scenes, and to getting ready for filming, which is able to happen throughout the last classes! Footage from the six video recordings can be edited into a movie, which can be made accessible to contributors for on-line viewing!
