San Francisco Bay Area Puppeteers Guild
Pop-Up Book Workshop
Pop-up Stage Workshop sponsored by the Nick Barone Workshop Fund
Zoom Presentation: Saturday, October 10, 4-5:30 pm PST
SFBAPG invites you to join us for the 4th Annual Nick Barone Workshop in celebration of the life and work of Nick Barone. This workshop will be presented free of charge and is open to all guild members and guests.
Pop-up books can make wonderful stages for puppets. When the puppeteer turns each page of their book to tell the story, the puppets move from one act to another, as new scenery pops up to set the stage and delight the audience.
Monica Leo is a master of pop-up book stages. In this workshop you will learn the art of paper engineering, tips on materials and ways to make surprising pop-ups with the larger pop-up pages. Also included are demonstrations of her stages, discussion of how the stages can be used and the techniques most useful in creating them.
Since 1975, Monica Leo has been creating and performing as founder and principal puppeteer of Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre, West Liberty, Iowa. Eulenspiegel has toured in 31 states and four other countries.
If you’d like to attend, please register ASAP. Registration closes at noon on Friday October 9. Registrations will receive a Zoom invitation on Friday 10/09. This event is also open to non-Guild members. However, if you’d like to become a Guild member (which gives you great benefits, including a monthly newsletter), join today!
