i am eager to share about a new project i've been busy working on. several weeks ago, i started a class at Puppet Showplace Theater, a puppet theater in Brookline that's just down the street from where i live. i took my girls there a few times to see puppet shows and they loved it. then i discovered they have adult classes!! i picked the shadow puppet class as i thought it would be an easy transition from my art to theater. plus, i wanted to put my novella to some use. i am excited to have found a medium where i can marry my writing with my visual art. the class runs to the end of March and then i believe we have an opportunity to showcase our work at a Puppet Slam, an adult puppet show event the Puppet Showplace Theater puts on every couple of months. i will share more details about that as we get closer to the time.
the story i'm working on is my novella, titled, "Winter With Satie." in trying to keep things simple and short, i won't be using any dialogue, but will use Erik Satie's music and only tell an excerpt of the story. here are some "work in progress" photos:
the last two shots were taken by a fellow classmate, Sally Moore, and edited by me. the characters still need some work and some refinement and change. i will share the final product in the coming weeks!
