Puppet Performance Tips : About Pendulums in Puppetry


In this clip, we want to talk about pendulums.
What we’ve done so far is basically a puppet in one location. Making different rhythms,
gestures, but I don’t want you to stand in one place. You also have to be able to move.
One way to think about how to move from here to there, is to think about pendulums. You
play that game where you throw a baseball. You know when it’s going to land. Even though
it’s imaginary, you can feel it and your audience can feel it too. Say I send myself on a pendulum
like that, and then I actually enact to the pendulum. I can also do short pendulums. I
can do a heavy pendulum, or a light and short pendulum. Use pendulums as a way to move through
space.
