The seminar

The choice of the material that we use for making the objects and/or the puppets is an important part of the the puppetry. Each material has its own sound. We will work with the sound of the material. Each material has its own movement. We have to figure out what is the sound and the movement of the material.
The starting point of this masterclass is the breath.The puppeteer is the motor but he has to focus on the material/puppet/object. We have to find the rhythm in the material in relation to the voice. What can we do with the voices. We will need to make excercises for the excesse of the voice / excesse of the material in order to find which is the combination between the two.

Damiet van Dalsum ( The Netherlands) will lead the participants to create characters with materials and objects. The participants will learn how to focus on the materials and help them express emotions though sound and movement. Damiet is renowned for expressing multiple meanings and deep human emotions through her figurative puppets, her manipulation and sensitive voice.

What the students have to bring for themselves:

A newspaper
Black Lead
Color pencils
One Flashlight that works good!!!!
Some plastic material
Comfortable clothes
Some music they like
A musical instrument (optional) if they can play
