It is very well suited as a teaching tool and as a form of expression in production work. This course aims to give you an introduction to the different aspects of the puppet theatre discipline. Puppet theatre can be cultivated as a separate art form or integrated into ordinary theatre and also exists in various mixed forms. You will gain insight into the distinct nature of puppet theatre, it's areas of application and possibilities for development. The course emphasises acting with puppets and objects.
There are no specific requirements for this course.
