The latest news about what we’ve been up to and behind the scenes of making our shows.
In September we kicked off the second part of our research and development period for When Seagulls Saved the World in the AMATA studios on Falmouth University’s Penryn campus.
We had great fun running a family puppet-making workshop at October’s Community Feast, organised by the wonderful Falmouth Food Coop.
We are currently undertaking a period of research and development for our new show, When Seagulls Saved the World. We recently spent a week exploring the theme of plastic pollution and our early ideas about the seagulls’ story.
At this year’s Rock Oyster Festival we ran a woodland creature puppet-making workshop, teaching festival-goers how to make their own finger/hand puppet out of an egg box.
We are looking for a second puppeteer for the R&D of our new show, When Seagulls Saved the World. The show explores the issue of plastic pollution, is aimed at a family audience, and will feature sea shanties and pasty-pinching seagull puppets.
Thanks to funding from FEAST Cornwall, we are creating mindful puppetry packs to help vulnerable members of our community coming out of shielding.
We are taking part in this year’s Children’s Art Week, encouraging children and young people to explore the natural world through our online creative tutorials.
For Creativity and Wellbeing Week 2020 we will be sharing three short mindful puppetry exercises to help still and focus the mind.
We had planned to do an R&D for When Seagulls Saved the World in June. With the nation now in lockdown, how do we continue with the project during this period of social distancing?
