Kay Yasugi from Pupperoos recently visited the London School of Puppetry’s marionette summer school to explore teaching marionettes in education (run at their Northern Study Centre in Yorkshire, UK). There was a carving course, operating workshops and marionette play time. With the theme of “Enchantment”, the students produced a variety of stringed creatures, including a gold-spinning goblin, a beanstalk-climbing rebel and a peg-legged dancer who befriends peacocks. The group also worked with dancer/director Belinda Chapman from Bound 2B Theatre, developing ideas for their new project combining physical theatre and puppetry.
