Terrible Comfort updates and thinks


Only two shows left of the two week run.

And during our first week, what we were doing but planning the next one. Sheesh. But I think it’s gunna be interesting.

So I’m currently embarking on what you could call a pre-project, creating one of every type of puppet we can think of, to learn how they move and figure out what kind of stories they’d be most useful for. Plus, we’re using only what we have around the house, which is fun and cheap.

Bunraku type puppet out of toilet rolls, check.
Rod puppet out of dowel, felt and an old pillow case, check.

We’ve got a number of foam mouth puppets and finger puppets kicking around, so next is a simple hand puppet I think. Weirdly enough I’m not sure I’ve ever created what surely must be one of the most common puppets to make before. To make it interesting, I’ll make a paper mache head for it, something else I’ve never done.

Love it!
