Solce understands puppet theatre as a "theatre of illusory points", which is the basis for the animation of material, objects, actors, puppets, lights, space, words or sound. Each thing acquires a new perspective and the possibility of animation only when the animator objectifies it. The easiest way to achieve this is to rhythmically express our material. The research of impulses will take place on a symbolic, theoretical and practical level. We will use objects in the latter, as they have
the possibility of creating rapid transformations with the help of rhythm, and at the same time, they convey strong symbolic meanings. In the second part of the workshop, we will orchestrate impulses and look for possibilities and potentials for character development based on musical principles.
