Creating Baz..

A few images to show the process of creating ‘Baz’, our handmade puppet, over the course of a few weeks. The process included:

Stencilling

Cutting polystyrene

Shaping + surforming

Sanding

Stringing together

Covering

When we had our completed puppet, we were then asked to create a short piece on the theme of ‘Transformation’. After researching possible ideas we decided to work with the idea of substance abuse in the form of exercise and fitness. The character is shown to be healthy and active, then throughout the performance he overworks himself to the point where he collapses. We felt this was a good opportunity to show what physicality the puppet is capable of, and also tell a story many people wouldn’t normally think about.
