Glenn Taylor's workshop introduction outlines the significance of lived visceral experience in aesthetic education. In particular, he challenges the concept of teaching physical theatre arguing that theatre is a lived symbolic form. If not ‘physical’ then what is it? Therefore, what techniques can we use to imprint/evoke physical/kinaesthetic knowledge of performance? How might the puppet theatre artist deepen their art though thinking and experiencing the body in a different way? Glenn illustrates how director Tadashi Suzuki conceptualizes the performer’s body and what a lived narrative or STORY might look like. A 70-minute practical performance training workshop will follow. Lastly, students from Sir Wilfred Laurier will present rehearsal showing of some puppetry vignettes they have developed in response to principles of Bunraku and school curriculum.
