Paper Puppet Poetry , ŠKART collective
Target audience(s): 6+; can be presented at schools, public and outdoors festivals, libraries and youth centres. Scalable from intimate groups to outdoor group work;
Set-up: DIY format, done wherever whenever; the only equipment needed is paper (white, recycled, etc.) paint (pencil, pen, marker, crayon, acrylic, spray, etc.), old cardboard, textile and/or recycled materials and sticks for set-building, and openness to experimentation.
Scenography: built by audiences together with the artist for the impromptu performances. Video documentation of performances is filmed (animation documentary) and texts printed locally. The work is based on a collective, collaborative process of creation (possibly in an intercultural and multilingual setting, for which the support of interpreters and migrant/diaspora community leaders and organisations is very important).
