The presentation will include:
• hand puppet
• bunraku puppet
• table-top puppet
• full-body puppet
Each puppet will perform a short musical number to demonstrate its technique and beauty.
Our Petrushka (a close Russian cousine of Mr.Punch) will perform a song using his swazzle-made voice.
This presentation is great for a mixed audience but children should be old enough to ask questions and participate in a dialogue.
The stage is not required. Perfect for a casual events.
