Puppetry has always been a part of cultural wellbeing. Its rich use of the fine and dramatic arts has created fantastic possibilities for professionals working in disability arts and healthcare. The craft of puppetry is particularly effective in facilitating communication and increased participation in fields such as autism, dementia care and mental health.

Writing for Puppetry

Speakers include: Melvyn Miller, Corina Duyn

Sat 24 March, 3.30pm - 6pm

Newton Building Lecture Theatre 4, Nottingham Trent University

Playwriting and dramaturgy function very differently for puppets and actors. There have been some high-profile performances such as War Horseadapted to stage using puppetry, but what are the challenges of using puppetry for a playwright and dramaturg? We’ve invited experts to open and discuss this very exciting debate about how to create great writing for puppetry.
