Puppets in Falmouth

Sarah Wright, who has made puppets for countless Kneehigh shows, is part of the Performing Objects conference in Falmouth from the 17th - 20th October.

The conference is a gathering place of Cornish, national, and international artists and scholars working in performance which uses “the object.”

“From puppets, to automata, to paper engineering, to digital apps, objects are always performing theatrically, functionally, aesthetically, and in other socially networked ways.”

The conference features keynote speakers, workshops, discussions and performances, one of which is Les Hommes Vides – a 20 minute, low tech, charming, eerie and comic performance of slapstick and surreal table-top puppetry and object theatre with puppets created by Sarah. There will also be a workshop to follow the performance.
