Studies in Puppet Form and Storytelling
Senior theatre making workshop

Studies in Puppet Form and Storytelling Online 2020

Starting Winter 2021 with Final Performance Spring 2021

Studies in Puppet Form, conducted by Federico Restrepo, introduced seniors to the use of puppetry in dance. Participants learned how to use the body and puppetry to communicate character and action, and improve body control and body language. They collaboratively developed a short puppet and movement performance that highlights their own stories. 

Ongoing Children’s Puppet Workshops

Loco7 continues to work with children ages 4+ on puppet and dance workshops with our collaborating organizations, La MaMa Kids, New Stage Performance Space, New York City Public School 19, Bank Street Head Start, and East Village Community School.
