ImaginArta has invited Richard Hart from Dream Puppets (Melbourne),Australia's leading expert in Black Light puppet theatre to run this workshop.
Black Light is a magical form of theatre? It uses Ultra Violet, in the safe spectrum, combined with visible, blue/purple light. Fluorescent pigments in paints and dyes glow brighter when exposed to it. A darkened room or space is required for the effect to be seen properly.
This 3 day black light workshop has a puppetry perspective, however, is also helpful to other art forms.
It will comprehensively cover all aspects of Black Light including, technical considerations,combining other light sources, types of materials, patterns and methods for making a black velvet costume, paints that are available and the effects of mixing them, black light for touring and of course, playing, making and experimenting.
Dates: January 26 - 28 inclusive
