September to December Update

Having survived and thoroughly enjoyed one of my busiest summers, I have moved into a productive autumn/winter season.

Thanks to Puppet Place I was selected to be part of The Puppetry Steering Group who are carrying out an inquest into how to improve the standard and quality of training and performance in puppetry in England. So far we have met twice and involved some of the countries leading groups in supporting development in puppeteers. details to follow.

Muppits Die Hard

I am currently performing in The Wardrobe Theatre’s annual Christmas production Muppits Die Hard. We are having incredible success having received our Arts Council Grant and fully sold out our extended run, from the 10th December until the 17th of January.  I also had the priviledge of making some of the classic characters for our cast with the help of Alex Hykel

Commissions

After the success of my previous work for them making a Fawn puppet this Christmas I was asked to make a Unicorn puppet by Forest Forge Theatre for their production of Stardust.

I have also been commissioned to make a five minute projection video using shadow puppets for a new musical called King Pit, by Stuart Bryson who recently had his show in the West End From Here to Eternity. This film is to be shown at a fundraiser gala evening held in February. More details to follow soon!

Below are some examples of black cut out silhouettes I have been designing.
