This course will introduce students to the rudiments of puppetry through the lens of toy theatre. Working from a basic model, students will design and build their own toy theatres and execute simple performances to animate them. Students will explore how design elements of scale and environment can be used to generate action and conflict in a microcosmic theatre.
