'Ten Days on the Island' is an intensive puppetry workshop being presented by two master-puppeteers from different corners of the world. Çağlayan Sevinçer from Istanbul and Gary Friedman from Melbourne come together on the exotic island of Gökçeada, Turkey, to share their skills and life experience. The workshop will take place from 12 - 21 August 2013.
The workshop is designed for puppeteers, animators, educators, drama & psychotherapists, community workers, theatre practitioners, as well as anyone interested in using the puppet to communicate a message to change their world.
This workshop teaches puppetry skills with an emphasis on skilful story telling and delivering a message using the most subtle and basic elements of breath, movement and characterisation, with minimal need for words. This tool is therefore ideal to work across any language, culture or age group.
It is packed with hands-on practical applications for transferring skills into the theatre, classroom, community or therapy environment.
The workshop explores the power of raw materials. The ‘naked hand’, paper and every-day objects are created into characters and transformed into Bunraku-style, glove, rod or string puppets. These materials are eco-friendly and allow puppetry to be used in any setting.
Participants will explore various ways of moving into a calm and centred head-space, with their senses and brain activated in order to tap into their innate power and creativity. Tools will be taught to overcome creative obstacles.
A primary focus will be using the puppet as a tool for inspiration and change. This is ideal for gripping drama, satirical reflections of socio-political environments and uncovering profound insights within educational or therapeutic settings.
