Creative Craniums

 

Stage one of construction has begun: we are giving Olio, our most persnickety of friends, his head! One part improv and one part guided my masters of giant puppets, the “Wise Fool Puppetry” bible, dextrous hands are crafting and oblong Olio out of cardboard, foam, chicken wire, staples, hot glue, and all sorts of odds and sods from the recycling bin. Add a layer of paper mache and, voila!, a man is born. 

Interestingly, yesterday a friend pointed out to me that Olio is also the word for oil in Italian. Poor Olio, it is your very namesake to pair better with wealth than water…

    Is Poor Olio related to Olive Olio’s?

  2. So cool! Really dig your creativity. How many people will it take to operate each puppet?

      Hi Sness!
      One person per character. Olio will have many moving parts too! Very next level 😉

  3. Totally next level! 😀
