Puppets & Performing Objects: Invisible Performance · Monday October 24, 2011
I created two shadow puppets, Floyd and Wanda, for the fifth assignment in Puppets & Performing Objects. This time Ithai wanted us to create an “invisible performance”, one in which we feature something that can’t be seen. My two puppets are discussing death as it relates to the light that gives them life. The puppets and stage were made from laser cut masonite. It should have included a mechanism of some kind, like hand movement, or jaws, because once you are up there in front of an audience there is only so much you can do with a couple popsicle sticks.
