How do innovative ideas within Arts and Health affect puppetry practice and how does puppetry inform innovation in other sectors

with Elspeth Penny

 

How do you create a play using puppetry and music to explore a health topic such as breath and breathlessness? Writer/Director Elspeth Penny, and Bristol University anthropologist Alice Malpass, are running workshops both for people with breathlessness and those who work with breath, called ‘Write a Letter To My Breath’,  collaboration with Life of Breath https://lifeofbreath.org. Out of these letters and interviews, Elspeth Penny working with with puppeteer Chris Pirie and composer Paul Bradley will create Gasp! A performance for clinical and non-clinical settings. 

 

Festival Breakfasts are an opportunity to meet over coffee and croissants to discuss ideas and issues around puppetry and celebrate the people who make it happen.
