Workshop moderators Ivan Martinka, Mária Danadová
The theoretical workshop about using animatronic principles on stage comprises three parts. The first part provides a short history of the animatronic principles used in film and theatre. The second addresses the creator’s perspective – from dramaturgy to the puppet, through the lens of animation. The third presents the Svetlonos puppet – from the creation process to live demonstration.
