KID CITY in the News!
Bird Puppet Lab will teach participants the skill of patterned puppetry design. Participants will add color and detail to a pattern of a bird puppet, and then cut out and fasten their puppets together. Once their birds are complete, teaching artists will lead participants to activate the puppets, both as individuals and as a flock. During the Boada’s bird dance, the audience will see puppetry performance that does not use spoken language but choreography as a form of expression.
Participants will learn fundamental performance skills of voice, physicality and joke structure, and put their learning into practice as they generate and record laughter from attendees, and capture funny faces for the Laughter Museum. The multidisciplinary, interactive Laughter Labs will be performed by all members of the artist team.
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
