Prague Film and Theater Center is hosting the UK physical and puppet theater company, Smoking Apples, in a combined workshop and performance on Friday, February 3rd at Divadlo Kampa. The evening starts at 18:00 with a workshop “Puppets as Performers”, then has a performance at 19:20 of “The Wordcatcher”. This is followed by a Q&A with the company. Tickets are 350 Kc for the evening.
During the 1 hour “Puppets as Performers” workshop, the members of this highly acclaimed British theatre company will share their approach to working with puppets with the participants who will then have the opportunity to try it for themselves.
‘The Wordcatcher’ is a bizarre tale of something and nothing, of sound and of silence both in the heart and in the mind. The Wordcatcher sees its characters try to fix things in place that don’t fit together and through the expert use of miscommunication, the audience will witness how the holes and gaps in this story fill a void rather than leave one.
