Miniature Set prototypes


I recently found out I had to self-isolate for ten days, after having left all my puppet prototypes and props at the devising space. Without my material, or access to the space, I had to think in a different way. So I spent yesterday building tiny sets using scraps of cardboard and photos of my puppets/backdrops printed out tiny. I want to experiment with using lace shadows as a backdrop. These experiments show the different levels of storytelling I would like to use – small, self enclosed “scenes” using small rod marionettes, two glove puppets (who are telling the stories illustrated by the rod marionettes and possibly even manipulating them), and then the puppeteer(s), who are manipulating everything.
