Discover the possibilities of contemporary puppet theater in this hands-on performance intensive with Yael Rasooly, one of the brightest stars of the international puppet festival circuit. Participants will examine the performer-manipulator relationship and experiment with the uncanny properties and personalities of everyday objects. We will use music and the singing voice as a source of inspiration, and learn how to follow and trust our instincts during solo improvisation.

Yael’s solo performance “Paper Cut” is currently on an extensive tour around the globe. The show has won several international awards and has toured to over 30 international festivals, including the International Festival for Puppets in Charleville-Mézières, France, the Puppets in the Green Mountains Festival in Vermont, and the Festival of Wonder, Silkeborg, and many others

About the artist:
Born in 1983 in Jerusalem, Israel, Yael Rasooly was trained primarily as a classical singer and went on to study theatre design in London. She began developing her unique theatrical language at the School of Visual Theatre in Jerusalem, where she specialized in directing, puppetry, and design, and graduated with excellence. Since 2006, Yael has been creating independent theatre works and has performed at leading international festivals throughout Europe, Canada, the United States, South America and the Far East. Yael’s theatrical language is based on a multidisciplinary approach, combining different forms of theatre, puppetry, visual art, and music.

Puppet Showplace is funded in part by grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the New England Foundation for the Arts. Support for “Paper Cut” is made possible by Puppeteers of America and Israel’s Office for Cultural Affairs in North America.
