Puppet Animation Scotland are dedicated to practical schemes to assist the continuous skills development and creative nurturing of professional practitioners: and this year we created one of the most exciting professional development opportunities (Hyperlink to opps page) yet.
Supported by the National Theatre of Scotland, and facilitated by leading UK puppeteer Gavin Glover (NTS: The Tin Forest, A Christmas Carol) over nine Monday evening sessions, artists of all disciplines will explore initial creative ideas that they have proposed and which place at their heart elements of live puppet and/or object manipulation performance.
For the first time in Puppet Animation Scotland’s history we are opening up professional opportunities to practitioners of cross disciplinary arts, giving individuals the chance to explore, play and create with a sense of open-endedness and possibility.
The artists chosen to take part in Testroom are:
Caitlin Skinner & Melanie Jordan
Lynda Radley & Nicholas Bone
Naomi O Kelly
