Program Overview

In this workshop, the Old Trouts will share their techniques and experiences gained from working in a collaborative consensus-based ensemble, and participants will apply these strategies throughout.

What does the program offer?

This workshop explores the creation and performance modalities connected to the work of the Old Trout Puppet Workshop, as well as additional, abstract approaches to the art of puppet and mask-orientated performance through collaborative consensus-based ensemble practice.

Participants will build, create, and collectively explore new facets of their work with the focus on discovery, rather than definite results. Participants will also work through exercises based in physical theatre theory and mask work, among others. These exercises will support the foundation of original theatrical puppet performances. 

Participants will create individual puppets, engage in small ensembles, and collaboratively create short experimental projects for public presentation. Please see the itinerary section below for more information on the intensive’s themes and activities.

The workshop is open to puppeteers, actors, dancers, directors, designers, teachers, visual artists, writers, and anyone with a willing spirit.
