Barbican Centre, pre-theatre workshops for Shona Reppe
Posted by Hazel Adams on
Shona Reppe's Cinderella
I ran pre-theatre workshops creating mini spoon puppets, using a variety of materials the children were able to make their own character chosen from a classic fairytale before watching Shona Reppe's production of Cinderella.
Shona Reppe's Olga Volt the Electric Fairy
I also ran a pre-theatre activity with the theme was relating to the circus and Olga Volt's heritage, I looked into Victorian games and decided to display how to make thaumatropes (a two sided disc with various images that when spun merge together), I went for a boys version of a strong man with lightning bolts and a girls version displaying Olga and an array of stars.
