The road to #Olifantland2016 is in full swing.
Day 2 of rehearsals began with our Creative Director Aja Marneweck leading the warm-ups and teaching our puppeteers the importance of breathing and opening their vocal channels. Music Director/Sound Engineer, Simon Kohler gave lessons on using the mouth and the voice as an instrument, thus manipulating the Vuvuzela to create elephant sounds that would help make the giant puppets come alive. Craig Leo, Puppetry Director, completed the day off with some introductory intense puppetry training where our puppeteers had the opportunity to test out the giant elephant puppets.
With the 18th of December just weeks away, the road to #Olifantland2016 is steadily making progress.
