Puppet Power 2007 conference 'Puppets as Agents of Social Change' is happening next month in Calgary, Alberta in Canada. It is expecting to be an exciting event covering subjects such as the uses of puppets in political and social activism and the puppet's role in promoting peace and creating change. Some of the speakers lined up are Argentine human rights activist and community artist, Graciela Monteagudo; Theatre of the Oppressed practitioner and community activist, Mariette Sluyter; founders and Artistic Director of Precipice Theatre based in Banff, Colin and Connie Brill and yours truly.
There will also be a Workshop of the Butterflies by Puppentheater der Stadt Halle - Germany, featuring surprising visual effects and life-size puppets. Hope to see you all there... For more information and bookings, contact Wendy Passmore-Godfrey.
