Haiku Sock Puppet Workshop

$5 Admission, all materials provided.

Try your hands at this adult Haiku Sock Puppet Workshop with puppeteer Anna Sue Courtney in Studio 268 of the Flying Monkey Arts. Anna Sue will lead the class in decorating their very own sock puppet, and then help students explore movement and motion in their puppet by giving out 3 actions.

Once students have mastered their actions, they pair them with a haiku of their choice, and perform their completed piece for the rest of the class.

This workshop will be an introduction to Puppet Slams which will be starting later in the month. Puppet slams allow you to present big stories in miniature. “Underground puppet slams are popping up everywhere. They feature contemporary short form puppet and object theater for adult audiences. Often late at night, in small venues, nightclubs and art spaces, puppet slams exist at the nexus of vaudeville, burlesque, and performance art through the intersection of theater, art, music and dance as a viable alternative to the culturally homogeneous mass media.” – Puppet Slam Network
