Puppetry Performance.

In my second year studying theatre, performance and event design we had a module called " the performance" , for this module we had to build "puppets" of some kind set from a series of catalyst. My two catalysts were "old woman" and "memory box". We decided to create story of two characters n a car home, discussing and memorising their past with an overwhelming feeling of nostalgia. Our two puppets were made from foam and wool, we used them as large hand puppets and acted behind them, I played the nurse of the care home listening to the two stories between both of the characters. The module really got me thinking about audience and how the theatre interacts with the audience. Very little is needed on stage t crate an atmosphere.
