Shadow Puppet Workshop (Construction & Presentation)
Shadow puppets are easy and inexpensive way of entertaining audience, young and old. In this 4-session workshop, you will create 2 to 4 silhouette characters, manipulate (choreograph or act) and present them. You have one puppet set ready to present to your audience. You will create your own shadow puppet play based on Chinese characters (see photo) and/or Ramayana (Indonesian) characters. Free/person: $60 (includes shadow puppet stage and materials).
A sample of a shadow puppet play can be viewed on youtube: Ang Unggoy at ang Buwaya (Tagalog version of The Monkey and the Crocodile) which is one of the puppet plays from the book/DVD: Puppetnettes Philippines. Sorry, we have the English version but did not post it on youtube.
There is NO workshop scheduled at this time. The instructor can hold a workshop at YOUR OWN VENUE as long as you have at least 5 participants. Participants must be at least 10 years old. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
