Trouble

Jesse-and-Mark

Over the last few months I’ve been lucky enough to be touring a puppet show through Yukon schools with Ramshackle Theatre.  The show, Trouble. was commissioned by the Yukon Women’s Directorate last year.  They had created a picture book to help kids deal with their emotions when they got angry or upset.  They commissioned Brian Fidler to create a script based on the book.  Brian then brought me on board to create puppets, props and sets.  After some experimentation we settled on 2D puppets which could be manipulated by magnets during the show (Brian’s brainwave).  This spring we took the show on the road.  Claire Ness joined Brian to bring the puppets to life and I stage manged the show, making sure Clare’s narration and Jordi Walker‘s awesome music came on at the right moments.  We’ve had a great time of it so far and finally have some photos (thanks to Tyler Kuhn) to share the experience with all of you.
