Develop a unique and portable puppetry performance and construct a magical theatre box, miniature theatre world and fantastic micro puppets in this innovative puppetry workshop.

Described by artist Álvaro Apocalypse as “A última grande invenção do teatro de animação no mundo,” or “The last great invention of animation theatre in the world,” Teatro Lambe Lambe is a form of puppetry or shape animation that takes place inside a confined but easily transportable space, usually a box placed on a tripod that, normally, one spectator would watch at a time. 

 

Each play or show is traditionally short, usually two to five minutes in length and a whole variety of techniques and tricks are used within these miniature theatres to offer spectators the full variety of puppet art, just on a smaller scale!”

Teatro Lambe Lambe (sometimes referred to as ‘theatre for one’) is a Brazilian form of puppetry that our Director, Fagner Gastaldon specialises in performing and has taught extensively.

 

This course offers you the unique opportunity to learn the art and craft of Teatro Lambe Lambe Puppetry with one of the puppeteers who was in Brazil for the start of this puppetry movement, and has performed Teatro Lambe Lambe for over twenty years. 

 

The course will run over four weekends (8 days) in November and December and timings will be set at Midday EST (Eastern Standard Time) allowing students from the USA, Canada, the UK and beyond to learn the art of Teatro Lambe Lambe Puppetry with convenient timings, especially for the winter months!  

 

The course will be run online and each session will consist of 2-3 hours of group tuition, in a small group, where you will receive lots of personal tutoring and guidance to make your own Teatro Lambe Lambe.
