Description

Big puppets have been used in many cultures and for many different theater companies around the world. Oversized puppets, or Mojigangas, have been used in Mexican towns during religious and cultural festivities. Mojigangas usually represent humans or animals from the town and are beautiful and playful. In this residency, students will be shown various types of puppets before creating their own designs. They also will learn how to use the puppets in a show. A presentation will be given for other students, teachers and family members on the last day of the residency.

  • Create their own puppets
