Event description

Description

Within this masterclass, artist, puppeteer and performer Oliver Smart will share his unique and dynamic approach to design, animation and fabrication.

Through observation, movement and experimentation, Oliver combines art and science to create a nuanced and rounded perspective of a creature in nature.

This masterclass will explore Oliver’s methods and will be a practical and hands-on experience to learn more about cross-disciplinary collaboration, prototyping, movement and live animation techniques.

Oliver Smart is a founding director of Folded Feather, through which he has internationally toured experimental puppet/object theatre since 2011. As a puppeteer he has worked with Disney, Channel 4, The National Theatre and ITV. Oliver is also a specialist tutor at Royal School of Speech and Drama, London College of Fashion, Rose Bruford College of Performing Arts and the Little Angel Theatre amongst others. Oliver Smart’s work was also presented at the Design Miami/Basel Exhibition in 2017.
