Table Top Puppets Workshop with Robin Frohardt

« All Events

Tabletop puppets, also called Bunraku-Style puppets, are built with articulation in the major joints, and move similarly to real humans. There is generally a handle at the back of the head, and sometimes short rods at the elbows and ankles. Their expressiveness and subtlety comes from puppeteer’s direct contact with the puppet – they can look quite ‘alive.’ They are usually operated at tabletop level for better audience visibiliity and ease of operation, though with larger puppets, it is possible to work them from the floor level as well. Generally the puppeteers are visible, but they can be hidden with lighting techniques. Ideally, three puppeteers would operate one puppet, though depending on the movement required, one or two puppeteers could operate the puppet.
