Puppet Theatre

A seed by: Natalie Tin Yin Gan
Project: Main Pool
顏婷妍 is the name that my grandfather gave me. Natalie is what my parents named me. My mother is from Hong Kong and she loves to eat with me. My father is from Malaysia and he is my greatest ping pong rival. I breathe and create in so-called Vancouver, on the unsurrendered, ancestral lands of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations. My practice squats (115 lb) at the intersection of spirit, somatics, and technology-induced melancholy. I am Co-Artistic Director of multimedia performance company Hong Kong Exile, a graduate of SFU’s The Writer’s Studio, a certified teacher of Fitzmaurice Voicework®.  I currently write for indie video game company, Sunset Visitor. I am a late sleeper, a late riser, a late bloomer, a latecomer, and a late-night snacker.

This is an original seed

Dog puppet. Cat puppet. Ostrich puppet ? A small shrine. Note our human attempts at manipulation. Crouching down on a busy Brooklyn street, I saw this. I thought of the act of animating inanimate animals the flamboyant theatre of funerary ritual throughout East and South East Asia I thought of the materialization of the mystical, the mythological, the ancestral And then?  the “strings”, seen or unseen, that dance us.
