Puppetry and Movement Workshop in London, 16 July

Moving With Puppets and Objects

A workshop for physical performers – dancers, physical theatre actors, circus artists – to explore combining their own practice with puppetry and object work. What is the significance of the objects on stage with you and how can you give them their own presence while maintaining your own? The workshop will explore these questions with an introduction to basic puppetry skills, followed by a short workshop space for participants to combine these skills with their own practice and then share their work for group feedback. Participants are welcome to bring a character, puppet, or object from a current project to work on (material should be no more than 1 minute in length) or use this time to create something new from scratch.

Alex Lehman is a physical theatre actor, puppeteer, and motion capture performer. A graduate of the Lecoq-based training at the London International School of Performing Arts, he has worked with Polka Theatre, Theatre Rites, Concert Theatre, Dotted Line Theatre, and On the Button, among others, and has done motion capture work for the video games industry.
