How can puppets change the way we communicate?

An Online Installation of student projects in A Show of Hands, an Elective class in the Global Stories series.

The stories that shape our lives and understanding of the world manifest themselves in a variety of forms. For the Civic Term of the 2020-21 school year, the A Show of Hands class challenged students to bring to life stories and issues meaningful to them using the medium of puppetry. So, in addition to the writing, music, sound, lighting, and movement—students had to physically construct the characters too. It’s this federation of story, performance, and craft that makes puppetry a timeless and powerful vehicle for ideas.
