Puppets at Work
I have a small portable stage with lights etc. and hanging racks for puppets.
All I need is a 3 pin power point to run a lead to. The area I need varies as I have to be flexible and work in all sorts of venues from family lounges to garages to larger halls and community buildings.
The ideal area for a birthday party needs to be 4m wide and 6m long, as the space for my stage needs to be 3m x 2m.
I prefer to work indoors but do, in some situations, perform outside.
When performing outside again I have to adjust to all sorts of conditions from private gardens to public fair-grounds.
I do have a large canopy 3m x 6m which is like a tent without sides, providing an area for me to work in as well as room for the children to sit out of the sun.
Wind is a major factor with outside performances as string puppets tend to blow around very easily so sheltered positions are essential.
