This week's Beverley Puppet Festival online entertainment offers...
Monday 22nd June... OBJECT THEATRE AT HOME with Helenandjohn (of London).
Helen Ainsworth explains step by step the basics of object theatre. We will perform a short physical warm up and look at the basic rules of manipulating objects. She will show you how to bring to life some household objects, transforming them into a fabulous menagerie!
Wednesday 24th June with POCKET FAERY TALES with Odd Doll Puppetry (of Slaithwaite).
Come on a magical journey at home to create your own unique short puppet story inspired by folklore and myth, using hand and object puppetry. Kathleen Yore from Odd Doll Puppetry will get you excited, get you giggling and get you thinking outside the box!
And finally on Saturday 27th June... MAKE A GIRAFFE FRIEND with Puppets Like It Hot (of London).
Make your own cardboard giraffe puppet with a moving mouth, to guide you through the dark months of social distancing. Who better to help you self-isolate than this chatty giraffe who has practised keeping six feet away from everyone all its life?
