Learn the physical principals behind marionettes and how to discover the special talents for movement of any marionette. A variety of marionettes from very simple to complex will be available for use. If you have a marionette that you'd like to explore, bring it along. As we discover what each marionette can do we will use that to express action and emotion and to develop short scenes.
