Announcing 2016 New England Puppet Intensive Dates

Join us for 15 days of vigorous training in the creative art of puppetry and animated object performance presented by members of The Old Trout Puppet Workshop. Instruction focuses on physical awareness, character development, ensemble building & puppet design. In addition, participants will work toward the development of original material presented at the end of the workshop at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA).

The New England Puppet Intensive aims to create an environment which fosters colloquy, experimentation, and collaborative development—framework which we believe promotes truly inspired work. Sessions start at 9am and go well into the evening. The fields and facilities at Buxton School in Williamstown allow us to work indoors and out, bringing our creative laboratory into the natural surroundings of this hillside playground. Several blocks of time will be designated as "time-off/artist-dates" when participants may choose to explore some of the surrounding arts and culture venues including Mass MoCAThe ClarkTanglewood, and the Willimington Flea Market

The New England Puppet Intensive is open to puppeteers, actors, dancers, directors, designers, teachers, visual artists, writers, and anyone with a willing spirit.

Where and When: August 5 – 21, Williamstown, Massachusetts

Tuition: Register before May 1: $1850. Register after May 1: $1950. Tuition includes materials, shared accommodation and meals.
