From a fish to a masc to a butterfly? The possibilities for transformation are one of the most imporant quality of puppet theatre. How to change a puppet in one second from one shape to another one? We work with one of the most conveniant and shapeable material: foam. We start a with presentation of the original puppet created by Nori Sawa and then we create puppets on our own. To finding a character in a shape is more important than creating it. Once we have designed our own puppets with ability to transform and we make up a short story and perform it for the others or invited audience.
