Rod puppets are known for their versatile performing abilities. They can be very simple in design and funny in character. Rod puppets can be very dramatic and expressive and have very complex construction and mechanics.
Our Principal Designer, Irina Baranovskaya, will share with you her 40+ years of experience in puppet building.
She offers two workshops where you will learn
· how to make a simple Push-Up rod puppets and
· learn and create a rod puppet control - gapit, as we used to call it back in the Moscow Central State Obraztsov Theater. This design is still used as a primary design in traditional professional rod puppets.
