Sure you know that, as Shakespeare said, “All the world’s a stage”, but what if you could control the destiny’s of the actors with a mere movement of your fingers? What if a theater was something small and the actors more manageable. If ultimate directorial power is what you seek, then Thumbelina Theater is right up your alley. In this workshop you will create a stage using a hand-held mirror and small found objects. The tiny performers will be created from clay and modified bits, doodads and thingamabobs. By the end of class you will have a miniature theater right in the palm of your hand.
