Dead Puppet Society Academy
The Dead Puppet Society is opening its doors in 2017 to a select group of young people to join its training academy.
The Dead Puppet Society is a production house and design company creating puppet-based, visual theatre in Australia and the United States. Uniting an old world aesthetic with cutting edge technical elements the company conjure immersive worlds where the mythic sits alongside the macabre, and the old school meets the technological. Working in an eclectic form of theatre that ignores the boundaries between defined artistic practices they balance artistic collaborations with training and workshops to strengthen the form of puppetry on the international stage.
The training Academy is open to senior secondary and tertiary undergraduate students. The ensemble will meet weekly at Brisbane Powerhouse, and under the guidance of senior artists, take part in training, learn the fundamentals of puppet construction, and ultimately work towards the creation of a brand new project.
In addition, participants will have the chance to connect with Dead Puppet Society’s other projects for the year through visits to the workshop and rehearsal room as well as backstage tours and forums with their artists.
Expression of interest are now closed. Dead Puppet Society will be in touch with entrants soon.
