Enjoy a day of workshops and theater at the Flushing Town Hall when “The Dragon King” drops in on March 10.
Members of the Tanglewood Marionettes will demonstrate the basics of marionette puppet manipulation. Participants will be provided with marionettes for the duration of the workshop and learn movement techniques to express emotion. Each puppet has been handcrafted, and is un-costumed and un-painted to showcase the construction and joining techniques used when building marionettes. Space is limited to 25 participants and the workshop is recommended for ages 8 and up. Younger participants should be accompanied by an adult.
After the workshop, the Tanglewood team presents “The Dragon King,” an underwater fantasy based on Chinese folklore. This tale is filled with colorful sea creatures, exciting adventure, and the gorgeous puppets of the Tanglewood Marionettes.
“The Dragon King” tells the tale of an intrepid grandmother who journeys to the bottom of the sea in search of the elusive Dragon King, and the answers to why he has forsaken the land above.
The interactive arts workshop is sure to inspire a love for puppetry in children and adults alike.
