the puppeteer and the student - another great twilight talk
In her research for her PhD Jennifer Pfeiffer conducted an international collaboration and residency with 5th generation Shadow puppeteer, A. Selvaraja from Chennai.
She will talk about the challenges the project presented, particularly those of communication, and cultural difference. In overcoming these difficulties, she details the poetics and story-telling strategies they employed to create their multi-media public performance. The talk will be augmented with visual examples from the production, The Window.
