About the Show

Puppets are vessels for the soul, waiting for the hands that will breathe life into them. But what types of hands possess the magic to animate the motionless?

In this workshop, participants can experience the joy and boundless possibilities of contemporary puppetry under the tutelage of experienced puppeteer Chen Chia-Hao. 

Using traditional glove puppetry hand training as a foundation, participants will have the opportunity to explore various delicate hand movements. Through imaginative exercises, transform your hands and discover your very own “hand creatures”.

Discussions will delve into the choice of puppets and their implications. Participants will also discuss the changing relative positions of the puppeteer and their puppet, how this changes puppeteer-puppet relationships. 

*This workshop is recommended for puppeteers who wish to gain knowledge and theatre-makers who wish to seek distinct ways of empowerment and explore puppeteering. Anyone highly interested in puppet arts is also welcome. 

什麼樣的手,能夠讓沒有生命的偶活起來?

講師在戲劇系畢業後有幸能加入當代偶劇團工作,卻在操偶的過程中不停地卡關,明明有很完整的心理過程,也努力的練習偶的動作,為什麼偶卻總是操不好呢?
後來開始學習傳統布袋戲,漸漸的改變了手的習性,才終於慢慢找到了連接偶和心理的橋樑,而經由數年的持續探索和整理,也漸漸歸納出一些操偶的通則。

本工作坊將以傳統布袋戲的手部訓練為基底,帶領學員探索各種細緻的手部動作,接著,進一步透過各種想像練習,引導學員將手幻變成各種生命的樣貌,並且找到屬於自己的「手生物」。此外,也會討論在劇場中,通過選擇不同的偶種,以及改變操偶師和偶的相對位置,可能產生出多少可能的人偶關係。讓學員們體驗到當代偶戲的樂趣和無限的可能性。
