Puppetry Centre Stage - where it belongs!
The 4th National Puppetry and Animatronics Summit will be proudly hosted at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, 5 - 8 July 2012.
Building on the best experiences of the previous Summits, the 4th Summit will provide a stimulating and provocative program of workshops, masterclasses, and forums for policy discussions and debates that celebrate the arts of puppetry and animatronics.
An exciting new feature of the 4th Summit is the Simplot International Masterclass - a ten day performance project lead by internationally renowned puppet master Roman Paska which culminates in a presentation at the opening of the Summit. There will also be a film program and a Summit Club where puppeteers can perform experimental items and works-in-progress.
