Are you ready to make the most awesome sock puppets ever? Then join us for this brand new weekend intensive with Jonathan Little of Little’s Creatures. We’ll learn how to transform simple socks into stunningly awesome characters and bring them to life on stage and screen. Students will learn the fundamentals of mouth puppet construction including how to cut, sew, and glue fabric, how to construct a working mouth, and how to attach eyes, arms, and rods for manipulation. Everyone will go home with their own original puppet!

No previous experience is necessary. This is a great class for teachers, craft artisans, solo performers, or anyone interested in pro-quality puppet construction.

In the holiday season known for masks and mischief, we’ll explore the playful and liberating technique of acting with larval masks. These abstract, large masks allow the performer to become aware of their stylized theatrical movements. In scenes and character studies, students will learn the power of non-verbal communication and discover how to portray a range of compelling and comedic characters through movement.

In the season of hibernation and introspection, each member of the ensemble will design, create, and perform with her own original “Self-specific” mask. This original technique integrates the emotional, physical, cognitive, and visual aspects of identity. Using a self-made mask encourages the actress to be an expressive, independent artist/performer and empowers her unique, dynamic, and diverse identity.

Explore the living environment as a theatrical stage in this unique space-based performance workshop. Working solo and in small groups, we'll use masks, props, and natural elements to create original and startling pieces of theater. We'll explore the practice, aesthetics, and politics of site-specific performance and gain inspiration from our surroundings, whether that's a rusty staircase, a familiar street, or a flowering tree.
