What is puppetry?

Puppetry is a form of theatre/performance that involves the manipulation of puppets–inanimate objects, often resembling some type of human or animal figure that are animated or manipulated by a human called a puppeteer.

"Puppetry is poetic and suggestive and expresses ideas that people cannot always say" - Black Hole Theatre's Artistic Director, Nancy Black.

 

What is spoken word?

Spoken word is a style of entertainment involving performance-based poetry that primarily focuses on the aesthetics of word play and story-telling. It can often include collaboration and experimentation with other art forms such as music, theatre, rap and dance.

"Spoken word is an avenue of expression – a free form version of poetry – that enables the performer to be traditional (i.e. Shakespeare) or contemporary (i.e. hip hop) in style" - Spoken Word Artist, Abdul Hammoud.

 

Would you like to get involved?

Participate and get involved in a range of workshops, performances, exhibitions and events.

All dance, puppetry and spoken word workshops are free and open to all members of the community.

All classes will provide a safe, social and most importantly fun environment
