Fall 2016 not offered
We will begin our exploration with a two-session intensive workshop with Dan Froot and the WHO'S HUNGRY? Puppeteers, where we will be working with stories collected in New England at homeless shelters and food banks. Based on this introduction, students will then create their own fact-based performances on topics or individuals of their own choice. The emphasis of the course is on theatricalization and performance rather than the creation of technologically complex puppets.
