Hi Carolyn-

Wish I could have seen your tabletop scene from Spoon River Anthology. Can you give us any details? Was this a class exercise or did you have to get rights to use the material? What about the technical end, puppetwise (including size, design, etc of puppet elements). Any photos?

ALAN

Actually, I HAVE done a production using the Spoon River Anthology as a starting points. A group of my undergraduate students and I built table top figures, and these were manipulated while one of the students recited one of the poems as a monologue. The opening poem they performed in concert, using their hands to make a face (an idea that we stole from the film "Labyrinth").

The piece was created for a Day of the Dead celebration (so, three years ago tomorrow!).
