Contagious Shadow Ruppetry In Modern Art
Shadow puppetry had been a illusive form of moving images ever since Han–Dynasty, and also a
form of art that had always intrigued me due to my heritage. During the Fringe Festival last week, I
attended a contagious shadow performance called "Curious Contagion", which broaden my view of
moving images in modern art. It was assembled by a duo named "Mind of a Snail" who specialized
in shadow puppetry, and they had been developing their unique blend of overhead projector and
visual art since 2003. I was astonished, (along with everyone who was in the darkly lit mini gym),
by the uses of the 'moving images' in this particular piece. They were in front of the screen, yet also
they were behind in the background. Therefore how the shadows and the moving images were used/
presented can affect the reaction of viewers. In one of the earlier scenes, a performer ... Show more

When the first transition emerged itself, the audience did not acknowledge it as much as the prior
scene. The images repeated itself, and the effect was caused by the pictures being on a spinning
wheel and the presence of a shining light from inside the wheel. These moving images were put in
the background to help to establish that the character is moving form one area to another. A later
scene used the same basic concept. The unicorn was smoking, which lead literal smog appearing in
her lungs. The pictures of the sickly smoke was shifted rapidly, causing it to move. This motion
generated groans of disgust, though it was mostly targeting at the green gas. Other form of usage for
the moving images surfaced at the climax of the performance, as 'baby viruses' spiraling down the
unicorn horn. This started off being the focal point for the shot, but then the infants gradually fade in
to the background. The crowd cheered at first when the viruses began to decent and seized a while
later as the focus

time. Besides having the same kinds of puppet theatre as other countries, Vietnam also has their own
unique puppet theatre called "Water puppet theatre". So, what is "water puppet theatre"? The answer
is in the name of itself, puppet theatre in water. Throughout the long history, water puppet theatre
not only has become unique traditional puppet art and popular to other countries, but it also nearly
disappeared in nowadays. There are many different histories about water puppet theatre in Vietnam.

puppet theatre turned out to be unique by its own unique puppets and the way it plays. The puppets
are made out of fig wood. This kind of wood is very light, can flow easily on the water's surface.
The fig wood was cut remains, carved with stylized lines separately and then castigate, polished and

the puppets usually fresh, fun, comedy and symbolic properties. Currently, the prototype was based
on folk, but the puppets are made fairly large, assembled in one body, a height of about thirty to
forty centimeters. Making puppets is complicated, if not as a standard, then people could not handle
or play it difficult. To complete a puppet, it should take a lot of steps, meticulously requires

Lion King the Musical Essay
Lion King: The Musical
The original Disney cartoon of a lion cub blamed for his father's death has been remade into a
Broadway musical acclaimed all over the world. Seen by over twenty five million people in over 15
thousand performances this intricately designed wonder has taken over 37 thousand hours just to
build the puppets and masks. Julie Taymor the director and costume designer was faced with a
problem of whether to create humans or animals playing the part and she decided to make masks
that show the animal face, as well as, show the human face giving the character his or her
personality. As for expressing other animals that are not part of the main cast or to express a certain
theme, 2 different kinds of puppetry were used ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
At one point puppetry is used to show the grasses of the savanna move as the wind blows creating a
magical effect.
Shadows which can make an object seem larger than it really is and make something scarier than it
really is are a major part of this musical. Originated either in Greece or China this now Indonesian
form of puppetry is called the wayang kulit and uses flat puppets made of wood and animal hide
against a muslin screen. In The Lion King, shadows are used to portray many animals or ones that
seem frightening. This wonderful combination of puppets masks and real people makes this a most
wonderful sight. There are certain themes that are portrayed such as listen, remember, and learn as
they teach us to be part of "the Circle of Life," remember who we are and where we came from, and
learn from our mistakes.
In conclusion, this wonderful portrayal of a Disney film seeks to teach us about our own lives and
who we are using wonderful techniques of puppetry and coordination. It is no surprise that they
have won many awards and acclaims all over the world as they show us their wonderful sets and
colors which include animals ranging from eighteen feet to 5 inches. Julie Taymor's wonderful
philosophy of dual meanings really makes this a great family musical.

ethnicities and culture. Jim explored many different cultures when he went to Europe for a short
time. During this time Jim was contemplating what he wanted to do in life, he was having doubts
about working with puppets. To him it was a means to an end, he was willing to do anything to get
into television but always just messed around with puppets. He pictured himself possible doing
commercial advertising or building theater sets, he didn't want to be labeled as only working with
puppets. Through his European adventures he had a change of heart however, over in Europe during
that period puppeteering was viewed as more of an art form than in the United States. while crossing
Europe, Jim could understand that what he was doing with puppets was an art form not just a means

Paragraph On Indian Theatre

1.2.1 Introduction
Indian theatre is one of the longest and amplest theatres in the world; it dated back to around 5000
years, as the other theatres in over the world Indian theatre emerged in the seasonal celebration and
religious ritual. Bharata's Natya Shastra was regarded to many Indian writers as the oldest and most
detailed in the dramaturgy context, where the origin of word drama in Sanskrit was derived from the
word "dance".? . The history of Indian theatre was existed in the excavations and historical records
in the ancient time; in one of the excavations there were two enormous epics which are The
Mahabharata and The Ramayana. So; the ancient tradition whether in the Western or Eastern world
has the same picture of performance in theatre which represents tradition though the philosophy in
Western world has the belief that there is no life after death whereas in Eastern world especially in
India life has the continuity even after the death there is existence of life. Indian theatre illustrated
idealistic view for life while the theatre in the West portrayed life as it is.

Role of the Scenographer
CR 516– SCENOGRAPHY– UoA2 Essay
Q//Write a, detailed, illustrated, analytical case study that explores the role of the scenographer and
the scenographic outcome in a live production or productions you have personally seen. Particular
attention should be paid to the overall scenic approach, the use of lighting, audio, visual effects,

drawing from other examples to be able to communicate the role of the scenographer and the

changes and the understanding of the ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
The main idea is for the puppet doll which is usually large, to be manipulated by the puppeteers as
the narrative unfolds. The puppets vary in size, and can be the size of a person (roughly 5 feet); a
puppet of this size would usually need three people to manoeuvre it. However, it is possible for the
smaller puppets to be controlled by one person, though from what I have seen it takes a lot of
precision to be able to follow the choreography of some of the dance routines whilst controlling the
walking and gestures of these puppet dolls. In the image (Fig 5) below, you see the character of the
meerkat, Timon, who if static may seem lifeless but with the help of the puppeteer, is extremely
animated when you watch from the spectators seat, especially during the song 'Hakuna Matata' plays
as he sings and speaks which evokes a human emotion. Having the puppeteer dressed in 'grass
covered' outfit really made it look like the puppet doll was doing all the 'work' as the green outfit
blends in to the scenes. The images Fig 6 and Fig 7 show some of the larger puppet dolls which I
found fascinating to watch due to the seamless coordination of the puppeteers. There are some very
graceful movements required when controlling these puppets, Fig 8 shows us this as the puppeteer
had to make it seem like the cheetah was walking very unhurriedly with a lot of grace. Fig 5 Fig 6

Contagious Shadow Ruppetry In Modern Art

Contagious Shadow Ruppetry In Modern Art Shadow puppetry had been a illusive form of moving images ever since Han–Dynasty, and also a form of art that had always intrigued me due to my heritage. During the Fringe Festival last week, I attended a contagious shadow performance called "Curious Contagion", which broaden my view of moving images in modern art. It was assembled by a duo named "Mind of a Snail" who specialized in shadow puppetry, and they had been developing their unique blend of overhead projector and visual art since 2003. I was astonished, (along with everyone who was in the darkly lit mini gym), by the uses of the 'moving images' in this particular piece. They were in front of the screen, yet also they were behind in the background. Therefore how the shadows and the moving images were used/ presented can affect the reaction of viewers.

The images repeated itself, and the effect was caused by the pictures being on a spinning wheel and the presence of a shining light from inside the wheel. These moving images were put in the background to help to establish that the character is moving form one area to another. A later scene used the same basic concept. The unicorn was smoking, which lead literal smog appearing in her lungs. The pictures of the sickly smoke was shifted rapidly, causing it to move. This motion generated groans of disgust, though it was mostly targeting at the green gas. Other form of usage for the moving images surfaced at the climax of the performance, as 'baby viruses' spiraling down the unicorn horn. This started off being the focal point for the shot, but then the infants gradually fade in to the background. The crowd cheered at first when the viruses began to decent and seized a while later as the focus ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The main idea is for the puppet doll which is usually large, to be manipulated by the puppeteers as the narrative unfolds. The puppets vary in size, and can be the size of a person (roughly 5 feet); a puppet of this size would usually need three people to manoeuvre it. However, it is possible for the smaller puppets to be controlled by one person, though from what I have seen it takes a lot of precision to be able to follow the choreography of some of the dance routines whilst controlling the walking and gestures of these puppet dolls. In the image (Fig 5) below, you see the character of the meerkat, Timon, who if static may seem lifeless but with the help of the puppeteer, is extremely animated when you watch from the spectators seat, especially during the song 'Hakuna Matata' plays as he sings and speaks which evokes a human emotion. Having the puppeteer dressed in 'grass covered' outfit really made it look like the puppet doll was doing all the 'work' as the green outfit blends in to the scenes. The images Fig 6 and Fig 7 show some of the larger puppet dolls which I found fascinating to watch due to the seamless coordination of the puppeteers.

The entire show is based on distrust and uneven relationships who are fueled by the need for power and even love. For Lady Macbeth and Macbeth, they are fueled by both of those elements one in the same. When Macbeth found out he could become King, he told Lady Macbeth in which she relished in his success and prestige. They were celebratory over this news and the actors showed that by making their characters very obviously physically attracted to each other. When it came to the power struggle in their relationship, much of it relied on the prophecies which heightened their struggle.

He also witnesses the dark horrors of these workers dying of "pneumonia or from the sulphur in their lungs from the mills" (pg. 8). This is our first glimpse through Patrick's eyes at the horrors the working class historically faced. Even in the Countryside, where there is little 'light' from development, there is a lot of danger as death spreads its shadow alongside the dimmer light of development and progress. Patrick's own father, a self–taught explosives expert, is killed in a mining accident. Here both the metaphorical light, progress and industry, and the literal light, the dynamite explosions, cast the shadow of death onto Patrick's father, to remind the reader how many lives of workers were sacrificed for development. No one remembers their contributions except for their closest family members. Despite the country shadows such as the death of Patrick's father, a clear contrast is drawn between light and shadow in urban versus countryside environments. Patrick is seen reminiscing about his father and recalls the "old skill he learned from his father... in the sunlight, in rivers" (p. 107).

They can find themselves in the need of understanding them and talking to them. As Raimes (1983) states, listening and speaking are, regardless of whom the people using the language are, at least as important as the other skills to communicate.

  • 22. Why Are Puppets Used In Theatre Puppets are used in the theatre in place of actors for a variety of reasons. Using puppets means that a production can have a large number of characters, even with limited actors, as there would be no requirement to organise backstage issues such as complex costume changes. Additionally, some shows may have animal characters which causes issues in terms of scale if actors were to be used. Therefore puppets may be used as a substitute, which is additionally beneficial as they do not have to be humanoid in shape. Depending on the type of puppet used, puppets may also be a cheaper option and so useful for smaller scale companies with lower budgets. However, there are also some restrictions when using puppets, in particular the limitations in movement ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Generally, these puppets are more complex to use than a glove puppet but easier than a marionette, and so provides another option for puppeteers that may be uncomfortable with using marionettes. An advantage to using this type of puppet is that it is a full body puppet, giving it the ability to complete actions that require legs, including walking, climbing steps, and kicking, as well as being able to sit down. This range of motions is useful for both the puppeteers who can show more complicated actions and scenes, and the audience who is able to gain a more complete image of the character. The use of joints within the puppet allows for more free movements, helping to reflect how a real person or animal would move, although this may be restricted by the use of a rod. Unlike with marionettes where there are strings to tangle together, these puppets would be free to work in close proximity to each other, which is useful for productions where puppets spend time close to each other or cross over regularly. Rod puppets can be manipulated in a large variety of ways, and so their range of movements can be increased by having multiple puppet operators working on one puppet. Despite this, puppets that require multiple operators in order to move can instead cause issues, especially on a small stage or when multiple puppets have to work closely to each other. In cases like these, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 23. Giacomo Puccini's Madama Butterfly Madama Butterfly, written by Giacomo Puccini, tells the tragic tale of Cio–Cio San and her American lover through music and lyrics in Italian. The production uses visual imagery to connect with the audience across language barriers and to create a stunning picture. One example of this visual imagery is the use of Bunraku and puppetry to portray certain characters. The use of Bunraku for the child created a lifelike portrayal but could not provide full emotional depth, and the other puppets towards the beginning of the opera felt unnecessary and confusing. The child puppet moved in a way that was close to the way and actual child moves, and the realism of this movement helped me keep the idea of the child in my head as I watched the show. I was able to ignore the three people controlling the child partly because of what they wore, the dark and veiled costumes concealing their identities, and partly because the movement and actions looked very real. When the child walked, the perceived weight shift was correct, and this helped create the illusion that Cio–Cio San had a child with her onstage that was her own.

Although The Broke 'N' Beat Collective has proved that puppetry can be aimed towards a broader audience, larger scale productions have also demonstrated this.

The fact that as a spectator you're very aware of the human being with the things strapped on, and you see the straps linking the actor to the stilts, that there's no attempt to mask the stilts and make them animal–like shapes – that's why people cry." (Bell, 2001, p.41) There is also, however, a further point to be considered after exposing the puppeteer to the audience, and that is the abilities of the puppeteer itself. It could be said that the puppeteer needs to be of a higher level as their actions become more visible to the audience, and as a consequence, means that good and bad puppeteering becomes more apparent. (Siegel, 1967, p.21) argues that "It is self–evident that no one can be a puppeteer without also being an actor. The difference lies only in the instrumentation of his means of expression. He acts through the puppet, he moves the puppet, he hides behind it, he serves it." The commitment and movements of the puppeteer is crucial towards the overall impact of the puppet. However, it could also be argued that it doesn't necessarily mean that you need to be a qualified actor to bring life and character into a puppet, or that you have to hide behind the ...

At first glance I thought, "How will this appeal to hearing people," but they took care of it with the actors who signed and sang/spoke. Their whole concept and style appealed to the deaf community by visualizing the music and sounds through lights, actions, and even smells. Although their method for deaf theater was strange, it shed light on the fact that you don't need to talk to convey an expression or an emotion. But it's how you utilize the set and effects for the sake of the deaf audience. Watching that video really encouraged me to want to see a deaf performance so I can really take in the different style of live theater. Something else that I never thought about to be utilized in theater were puppets. The line the designers used that really caught my attention in the video was that, "A puppet struggles to live and breathe through a show." That line really changed how I thought of puppetry. Before I thought they were a type of effect used as props, but they are more than that. A puppet is part of the cast. Right when the puppet enters the stage, it is present in the moment, struggling to stand up, to breathe.

This is our first glimpse through Patrick's eyes at the horrors the working class historically faced. Even in the Countryside, where there is little 'light' from development, there is a lot of danger as death spreads its shadow alongside the dimmer light of development and progress. Patrick's own father, a self–taught explosives expert, is killed in a mining accident. Here both the metaphorical light, progress and industry, and the literal light, the dynamite explosions, cast the shadow of death onto Patrick's father, to remind the reader how many lives of workers were sacrificed for development. No one remembers their contributions except for their closest family members. Despite the country shadows such as the death of Patrick's father, a clear contrast is drawn between light and shadow in urban versus countryside environments. Patrick is seen reminiscing about his father and recalls the "old skill he learned from his father... in the sunlight, in rivers" (p. 107).

This includes the style I have chosen to use, as well as what and who influenced me and how I plan on using this puppet. I decided to go for the shadow puppetry method. What exactly is shadow puppetry (also known as shadow play)? In order for something to be considered as shadow play you only need about three things, namely a source of light, a form (can be a figure or your hand etc.) and a wall/screen/surface to project onto. If you are like me and try to make a dog or an ostrich with your hands every chance you get then you can say you have had experience in shadow puppetry. I decided to use shadow puppetry because I remember watching a shadow puppet show when I was younger (about six or seven years old) and it was incredibly captivating yet so simple.

But what defines a puppet? A puppet play can be as simple as a girl who picks up her favourite figurines and arranged them around her table pretending to have an afternoon tea party. Any inanimate object that is characterized and put in a scenario, could be categorized as a puppet. According to the Merriam–Webster Dictionary, a puppet is "a doll that is moved by putting your hand inside it or by pulling strings or wires that are attached to it". Based on this explanation, we can see that a puppet is different from other figurines because they are made for control and movement. The amount of elaborate ...

Some of the others are performing traditionally and were subsidised by the government for they are labelled as a part of national heritage that attracts the foreign tourists' attention, such is the Water Puppet Theatre Company in Hanoi, Vietnam. Robin Ruizendaal (2009) stated that there is a steady decline in the interest of traditional puppetry since the arrival of home television. And a lot of puppet theatre companies disappeared as their opportunities decreased. As a result, some puppet companies tried to blend their traditional art with a touch of modernity in terms of music and lighting.

When a person befriends someone who is similar to them, they tend to find them trustworthy, fair, and intelligent, as opposed to someone who is dissimilar to them. This study researched the significance and social consequences in early preferences of similarity. It's suggested that infants' social evaluations are based on two criteria's: whether the act done by the individual was helpful or harmful, and the infant's personal feelings towards the target of that act. In the first experiment, there were thirty–six 9–month–olds and sixteen 14–month–olds.
