Description

THIS TALK IS PART OF Puppet Power 2018: Story | A Conference on Applied Puppetry
June 1-3, 2018 (Friday evening, all day Saturday and Sunday)
Venue partner: University of Calgary's School of Creative and Performing Arts (2500 University Dr NW)Purchase this talk individually or click here to register for the entire conference.

Join Ann Powell and David Powell from Puppetmongers Theatre (Toronto, Canada) as they share their approach to story selection and story development into puppet theatre; including how they strive to develop creative collaborations to reveal the underlying meaning of the stories that intrigue, while expanding their own conception of the potential of puppetry, theatre, and storytelling.

They will also talk about how they educate, transport, delight and engage the consciences of their audiences, young and old, by exploring important stories which resonate in a contemporary context, by creating something never seen before, yet made accessible through its grounding within recognizable traditions of puppetry and storytelling. Ann and David will show examples of this process through their productions of Walidad the Grass Cutter (based on a traditional Iranian folktale), Foolish Tales for Foolish Times (four short traditional tales of foolishness from around the world) and more.
