CREATIVE LAB: LIZ JOYCE
Monday, February 12, 6PM – 7:30PM
$15.00 ($10.00 Members)
Creative Lab is a series of interdisciplinary workshops designed and led by Guild Hall’s Visiting, Exhibiting, and Resident artists. Each Creative Lab invites participants to learn about an artist’s practice through an open lecture and a participatory workshop.
This evening’s Lab is led by fine artist & puppeteer, Liz Joyce. Trained as a fine artist, Liz’s approach to puppetry has been influenced by European puppetry traditions and the eccentric energy of New York’s downtown performance artists. She honed her carving skills working with traditional puppet carvers in Prague, Czech Republic, and often collaborates with other puppeteers in the international puppet community. Liz’s puppet operetta, Sing a Song of Sixpence, was awarded a UNIMA Citation, the highest award in American puppetry.
The Lab will focus on Liz’s puppetry and theatre practice. A collaboration between Liz Joyce and both Wainscott & Sagaponack schools is on view in the current exhibition, Student Art Festival: Eco vs Ego.
