Part of the ORA/EJC Collaborative Educational Series

In this hands-on introductory puppetry workshop, participants will explore breath as a foundation for the puppeteer's awareness and creative intelligence. We will practice bringing objects and tabletop puppets to life, through exercises that focus on collaborative theater-making. No theater or puppetry experience required.

Ora Fruchter is a theater-maker, puppeteer, director and educator. Her most recent show, The Amazing Story Machine, uses found object puppets to celebrate imagination and collaboration. She kis the recipient of a Jim Henson Foundation Family Grant, a Young Pioneers Award for innovation in Jewish education, and was selected as one of the Jewish Week's 36 Under 36 (2017). www.orafruchter.com
