Paper and Movement
Updated: Mar 11, 2020
As a teaching artist with Cambridge Community Schools I am starting a new class at Fletcher Maynard Academy. Paper and Movement integrates visual art and performance for youth artists. We will generate narratives as we build flip books, flap books and painted paper puppet plays. We will then incorporate our bodies and voices with shadow puppets, giant paper flowers and a shadow experiments on a projection scrim. The final presentation will be some kind of performance - we just don't know what quite yet!
In the Spring semester we will focus on Film Production moving from my analogue projector shadow projects to a digital mini projector. With the ability to playback actual footage of our own skits and dances we will create longer stories. We will work on script writing, story boarding and set design. The work will then be filmed and shown to parents in our classroom movie theater, popcorn and all! Stay tuned for that post in May 2020...
