Join Smoking Apples Theatre Company at Surgeons' Hall Museums for a Puppetry and Anatomy Workshop in celebration of International Women’s Day.

Smoking Apples are one of the UK’s leading puppetry Theatre companies who have achieved critical acclaim for their work that uses puppetry to explore a range of challenging topics including health and the role of women in Science.

They are currently in development for their brand new show, New Clear Vision. Inspired by the female scientist, Lise Meitner, it is their first show which has a central female protagonist and will explore Nuclear Physics in addition to the position of women in science.

In this practical workshop you will explore the themes of Smoking Apples new show new show and will have the chance to learn the basics of puppetry, using full size, bunraku-style puppets that work in the same way as the human body. Using the Museum’s collection of anatomical models, including joint movement and skeletal structures, we will look specifically at how these can help us work with puppetry, ensuring that movement is as true to life as possible and how this, in turn, helps suspend the belief for an audience. This will be a physically practical workshop so participants should wear suitable clothing.

This is a four-hour workshop with an hour for lunch between 1pm and 2pm.
