This class will explore the art of puppetry with a global perspective. Students will be required to research regional puppetry from various cultures as well as contemporary puppetry practices such as puppetry in education and puppetry as political activism. Emphasis will be on the context in which the puppets are created and how the puppet traditions support and reflect the culture, era, and educational environment in which they are made and used. Notes, ideas, stories and reflections will be recorded in handmade journals. The semester will culminate with students working in groups to create puppets, write a script and produce a puppetry event for the community.
