One of ourĀ KismetĀ puppeteers discovering the movements and personality of a brand-new paper puppet he had just created. The shape is pretty simple, but he gets a good range of motion out of it. Take a look at the video here:

From the Rehearsal Room #1

Rehearsals this month have been taken up with some strength conditioning (puppetry can be strenuous!), lots of experimenting with puppets, discussing the storyboard and story elements in detail and some puppet building. We will be sharing more insights into the process (including interviews with our cast, video and more) but here are some photos of early meetings in February:
