Course Homepage:

"The Puppetree Project" is a performance collaborative for students wishing to gain experience in puppetry design and performance. In partnership with the Nichols Arboretum and Matthei Botanical Gardens, The Puppetry Project intends to develop and perform plays for young audiences about the environment. In spring 1999, The Puppetree Project will produce "Old Rat's Promise" a Sardinian folktale about reforestation, adapted by Carolyn Balducci. Deborah Gibson, puppeteer and designer, will facilitate the design, creation and manipulation of marionettes, rod and shadow puppets. Through research and design, student-puppeteers and artist-consultants will study and discuss puppetry as well as environmental issues and Sardinian culture. "Old Rat's Promise" illustrates how rapid deforestation destroys both the ecology and the economy of a region and shows that individuals and communities can somewhat reverse the effects through a coordinated reforestation effort.

Schedule: In May, the group will meet twice a week (TBA) to discuss readings, build puppets and rehearse the play. Participants should anticipate that starting June 1st, rehearsals will intensify and should plan accordingly. Performances will take place on SUNDAY JUNE 13th, 1999 at the Nichols Arboretum's "Arbfest" between noon and five o'clock.
