Video Projections and the Puppet Play

In November, Jamie began working as Technical Director on a project for Qaggiavuut’s newly graduated Projection Designer, Rico Manitok, who trained with Jamie on the play, Kiviuq Designs. Their first step, to build a scaled down model to test the concepts for a full size set design for a new Inuktitut live touring puppet show with video projections and live music.

Puppet master will be Roselynn Akulukjuk of Inhabit Media. Qaggiavuut’s project leader is Christine Tootoo (Kiviuq Returns), with Artistic Director Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory.

The puppet play is in the early development stage between now and March 2019, with concept development and script writing. Watch this space!
