Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Glove Puppeteers in NY?

Perhaps a good idea would be just to start a workshop teaching people 
interested to make and use glove puppets finishing with a presentation at 
the end. From that group may emerge people who want to continue working 
together. The people I worked with on the Punch project had not made glove 
puppets before . Now each of them has their own Punch cast and booth and the 
oportunity to keep performing....together or on their own. Own final show 
together (6 puppeteers, 6 booths and 60 puppets) was, as one member of the 
public said "demente"....people want us to perform again at the end of 
just an idea. If I was in NY I would enlist.
all the best
