Been a while since I posted anything here, so this is an update of how the project has progressed. I have had conformation for some really exciting filming locations for the puppet to visit around Canterbury which is fantastic and a big relief. But enough admin! ...the sun light has poked its way through the mountain of paperwork and emails... onto more interesting areas.
Construction for the puppet has been finished and experimentation with movement has begun. Along side this, in rehearsal I have been leaving the puppet on the side and experimenting physically with new research. Going back to initial spark that inspired the project has trigged exciting material that explores the very core of project.
Today I have had my work in progress performance, in which I got some very positive feedback and some interesting comments to act upon. So feeling positive going into this weekend. The time is drawing near...and harsh, harsh realities are starting to take a grip...
