Puppetry. The art of manipulating an inanimate object to create the illusion of life.
Lab. Not the dog breed nor the region on the easternmost coast of Canada. Nor is it the river in Serbia nor the people group in southern Albania. Lab. Not to be confused with the acronyms for such things as lactic acid bacteria nor the League of American Bicyclists. Rather, Lab in this context is short for laboratory. A place to study, learn new techniques, and experiment with new ideas.
PuppetryLab.com is here to provide beyond-the-basics training and practical helps for puppeteers, puppet teams, and team directors.
