Acclaimed director/Shakespearean actor McDonald finds each student’s personal technique for proper projection, volume, sound, breath control and relaxation using the monologues of Edgar Lee Masters’ Spoon River Anthology.
Participants work in small teams to build bunraku-style puppets from newspaper. Following the building there will be instruction in manipulation, including breathing, walking, emotion, and working together. Short scenes will be practiced in teams. Participants will get to take their original puppet home. No experience necessary.
