Plan your visit

The blank page is a writer’s nightmare, and a blank stage can be a devisors dread. Creating something from nothing, or transforming a piece that already exists into a new form, can be a daunting task.

This one day workshop will share some of the tips and tricks Charlotte has gathered over her 10 years of creating theatre with puppets. These include: working with simple text stimuli, using the puppet design as inspiration for character, allowing music to inform choices and the relationship between puppeteer and puppet. This course is a great opportunity to test your ideas in a safe space with like-minded practitioners.
