4th National Puppetry & Animatronics Summit 

 Extends a Warm Invitation to Assitej NZ to participate in this Landmark Event for 2012!

The 4th Summit will be proudly hosted at the Victorian College of the Arts, University of Melbourne, 5 – 8 July 2012.

Proposing the theme Puppetry Centre Stage – where it belongs! The 4th Summit will provide a stimulating and provocative program of workshops, masterclasses, and forums for policy discussions and debates that celebrate puppetry and animatronics as vibrant, main-stage art forms.

An exciting new feature of the 4th Summit is a ten-day performance project masterclass, lead by Roman Paska (a New York puppeteer of international renown), which culminates in a presentation at the opening of the Summit. There will also be a compelling film program with panel discussions that include Oscar winners Adam Elliot and Shaun Tan, and of course a Summit Club where puppeteers can perform experimental items and works-in-progress in an adult cabaret setting.
