ReAnimating Research Through Puppet Creation and Performance
February 21 at 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Land-focused, place-based, and/or ecologically motivated research lends itself to storying. Action-inspiring awe can come from observation of the mini-dramas all around us, and puppetry, like other story telling modes, has the power to cultivate that awe.
Using puppetry as a medium we’ll work through three layers of ecologically motivated research creation–theory of practice, practice of practice, product of practice–and how these layers weave and can be woven together. Workshop participants will conceptualize and create a character from their research (molecule, tree, phenomena, etc.) and use these creations to help story their own research projects.
Please join us at one or both sessions. This workshop is part of our Research Excellence Workshop Leader Initiative (REWLI). Click here to learn more and see the full list of offerings.
