See something. Say something. Are these phrases an encouragement to mistrust? Perhaps we could take them as instructions for play. A group of students will create care packages to leave in public. The results of what happens will be transformed into performance for the showing of “Take Care.”

Led by Masanari Kawahara

Giving life to inanimate objects made from cardboard, masking tape, newspapers and papier-mâché, we will create small and intimately-scaled puppet theater. Different forms introduced may include object theater, hand puppets, figure puppets, and doll/bunraku puppets and masks. We will explore creating an intimate theater from scratch inspired by poems, obituaries, or a love letter.
