I am leading body movement to prepare artists of color as they work and learn with Master Puppeteer and visiting artist Tom Lee!  If you would like to join please rsvp to Chamindika Wanduragala

Monkeybear is bringing puppeteer Tom Lee for a two day workshop to teach us the sannin-zukai style (commonly referred to in the states as Bunraku-style of puppetry), exploring the basic techniques of 3-person manipulation: head operator, left hand operator and leg operator.

This workshop is for participants to learn the art of bringing a figure to life through focus, breath, weight and fixed points of intention. We're so thrilled to provide this opportunity!

Saturday, Aug. 5th 1pm-6pm
Sunday, Aug. 6th 10:30pm-3:30pm
$10 for each day

Monkeybear's Harmolodic Workshop nurtures people of color/Indigenous people in contemporary puppetry and sequential art.
This activity was made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund as well as individual donors.
