Puppetry Development Consortium

Puppetry Development Consortium

From November to January I have been involved with the Puppet Centre Trusts project
Working together to Strengthen Puppetry  with the Puppetry Development Steering Group.

It has been inspiring and fascinating to meet the people involved:

Sue Buckmaster- Artistic Director of Theatre Rites
Joy Haynes- Director of the Norwich Puppet Theatre
Slavka Jovanovic- Head of Education and interim Artistic Director of the Little Angel
Eddie Berg- Head of the British Film Institute

The Puppetry Development Steering Group was brought together by the Puppet Centre Trust to discuss ways we could “Strengthen Puppetry together”. After five consultation meetings with various other creative sectors like Circus, StreetTheatre and Animation we concluded that something that could benefit our industry was better

  • Leadership & Advocacy
  • Talent Development
  • Audience Development

Agreed upon this we set about putting together another Grant For The Arts Application to commit to a year of meetings with a selected group of Puppetry Practitioners from all over England that could develop strategies and share ideas to improve on the above mentioned criteria. I am representing Puppet Place in the Southwest as an Independent Puppetry Practitioner.

We have just received the news today that we have qualified for our Grant and will be carrying out these meetings. If you would like to know more about this process follow this link http://www.puppetcentre.org.uk/about/puppetry-consortium

August 12-13th Puppetry Workshops for Knightstar Productions Summer School

Having met Knightstarr’s founder Jackie Kenyon through NODA I was asked to deliver two days of workshops to her summer school for young people in Chichester. We had a great time making puppets and discovering two different styles of puppetry. With the 7-11 year Olds we created newspaper lip syncing puppets  and worked on improvisation and character development. With the 12-16 year olds we worked on Bunraku style Puppetry making our very own Bunraku style figures in newspaper, working on movement and observation. Friday when the Summer School Culminated the two groups performed for their parents to everyones delight.



August 2-10th Teaching Avenue Q style puppetry at NODA Summer School

This was my second year delivering a puppetry course for NODA at Warwick University. It was a wonderful challenge to combine puppetry and singing, thanks to Voice Tutor Pam Rudge I was accompanied on this journey. It was a big ask to deliver the skills needed capture the characters of this larger than life musical. Our students coped well with the demands of learning, lip-syncing, rod puppetry, and twang (the American accent style that supports the voice of these characters. I was absolutely delighted with the efforts of the individual students and their enthusiasm to master this art form. We were lucy to have the support of Weinbergers who provided up with the actual touring puppets from the UK tour Avenue Q production.

To see what went on check out the gallery below.

July 28- August 1/ Detective O and The Cold Case Caper at The Wardrobe Theatre in Cotham.

Betty Blue Eyes

Betty Blue Eyes is the wonderful Musical Adaptation of “A Private Function”

I was commissioned by the Dance School Of Scotland to create their Betty!
She was created over a two week period, from foam and fleece.
It was a pleasure to deliver her to Glasgow in person and train their cast to puppeteer her.
Over the next month they will be rehearsing and blocking the entire piece which is directed by Graham Dickie.
together we blocked and directed scenes with Betty so that students would feel comfortable with the puppet.
The production will be opening on June 18th 2014 running until June 21st.
I will make sure to put up some production Photographs once Betty has performed

Here are some images of my process.


Birthday Parties!!!!

Do you need some entertainment at your next birthday party?!

Why not enjoy the company of some wonderful interactive characters. Our latest outing was to a 5th birthday party held at King Weston House in Bristol.  25 young children aged between 3 and 7 were delighted and engaged by Andrea Delamico, Buster the Racoon and Pirate Percy and his tales of Treasure.

Combining games and creating a story that is inclusive this is a delightful and memorable highlight at any young child’s celebration.
