What Happened to You? is a new, heart-warming piece of puppet theatre for children and their families, coming to Toronto this summer from the UK! Created semi-autobiographically, puppet designer Nikki Charlesworth challenges the fundamental laws of traditional puppetry by making puppets that reflect her own disability, and moves as she moves.
What Happened to You? also features creative use of Audio Description, embedded into the original score, and integrated American Sign Language by a Deaf actor, which introduces children to enhanced access. What Happened to You? will be presented as a relaxed performance; house lights will remain on at a low level and audience members will be able to enter and exit the theatre as they wish.
Join us before the show for a complimentary puppet-making workshop with What Happened to You?'s director and designer, Nikki Charlesworth! During this 45 minute workshop, you will learn about basic puppetry and create your own puppet using found materials - you can bring your own from home! Plus, meet the cast and puppets from What Happened to You? up close!
ASL interpretation will be available at the workshop on Sunday, August 21.
Space is limited so be sure to register early!
