Master IT | Practical Possibilities with Puppetry

The Last Great Hunt’s Master IT | Practical Possibilities with Puppetry workshop has been CANCELLED due to COVID 19 lockdowns in NSW and VIC.

A workshop on embedding puppetry in performance work, presented by The Last Great Hunt

Where: The Street Theatre

Wed 21 July 11am – 1pm

Thurs 22 July 11am – 1pm

Places: up to 15 artists working with puppetry in their performance work or wanting to.


Award-winning company The Last Great Hunt are back at the end July with New Owner – a performance work combining puppetry, live action and animation, that takes us on a world of adventure through a dog’s eyes.


Artists RACHAEL WOODWARD and CHLOE FLOCKART will take the group through processes used by TLGH when devising New Owner from how they worked from an idea to the show New Owner and how it has evolved through touring.

Day one – How we make it together

will cover devising theatre, moving past sticking points including turning ideas into images, and considerations for touring work.

Day two – Hacking waste, making puppets

jumps into puppet hacking and the process of toy hacking that was used to create the puppets for New Owner and how to perform with them.  Participants will make their own puppets.


From visual dramaturgy to repurposing objects to sustainable artistic practice Rachael and Chloe will give an understanding of the elements to consider when making work of this nature.
