PupPetRy foR aDulTs


  • 25.8. - 31.8., 3h/day 11-14h


  • +18, min 5, max 16 participants


Personal power is nothing other than the attitude of our mind. We can not control our thoughts, feelings, emotions, energy and physical strength without feeling fear.

Working with the puppet as "dead matter" that we revive giving it, besides movement, verbal communication, emotion, state, we also give it our fears. In a wonderful therapeutic way, doing that we are trying to get to the breakdown of our fears. Through the etudes of different horror stories, of course, with more scenic effects (scars, zombie makeup, etc), puppet play becomes our true remedy for our fears and also our way to the release of it.

During the workshop we will deal with our fears and how, with the help of puppets – masks, we can show our true inner fear.

Students will participate in the making of puppets, finding their technological solutions, and later will be engaged in their animation on a given topic "What all puppetts can, and man can not do".
