Creative Residency Programme: Artist-Led Puppetry Performance

‘You, me, birds flying through the rainforest. 
We are all connected. 
We are all nature. ‘

Through puppet performance and sensory play, discover the connections that link us to our planet. With a little help from everyday objects, Myra Loke uses her research in child-led play to create a journey filled with different sounds and textures of the world in a puppet show inspired by ‘You Are Stardust’ by Elin Kelsey and Soyeon Kim.

About the Creative Residency
Inspired by a desire to extend the reach of picture books beyond the book, the Woods in the Books Creative Residency supports creatives to create a body of work that designs experimental literary forms or programmes to engage the community. Over a 6-month period, our resident will explore and push the boundaries of picture book literacy.
