Paper Monkey Theatre has been conducting puppetry Masterclass annually for practitioners. The objective to inspire and create an entry point for more to take on the art form.
Paper Monkey Masterclass started from the urgent need to address the dwindling number of puppeteers and artists who possesses puppetry skill sets in Singapore, which greatly places this art form at risk of losing its relevance.
Masterclass seeks to provide foundational training for puppetry to arts practitioners, with a focus on it as a core discipline. It hopes to sustain its relevance by inspiring more practitioners to develop a love and deep passion for puppetry, and to encourage the
production of more puppetry works thereafter, and for the future generations to gain access to this art form.
