What does the KPP tour offer for Kootenay communities today in 2020/21?

The Kootenay Puppet Tour has three componants. Workshop, story collaboration, and live inclusive puppet shows. We take the particpants through some live animation skills, puppetry arts and set designs. We then offer a cultural story telling of our Indigenous roots of the area by collaborating with eachother and with elders of the land. Our final piece is to fuse our games, puppet building ,story collaboration and our unique puppet performance for a memorable and transformational experience, that we share with YOUR community or event.
