Residencies can last anywhere from 2-5 days and can include performances as well as workshops in the creation and manipulation of hand puppets, shadow puppets, rod puppets, or simple marionettes. The puppeteers draw on their 30 plus years of experience to teach puppet-making and performance techniques that are accessible, cost-effective, fun and foolproof.
