Discover how the National Theatre production of Pinocchio was created through puppetry, movement and imagination in this Creative Development weekend led by Puppetry Director and Puppet Co-Designer, Toby Olié and Associate Puppetry Director, Sarah Mardel. 

Explore the principles of puppetry, and learn to work in teams by putting physicality, emotion and thought into a character.

This free project includes a ticket to see Pinocchio at the National Theatre on Friday 26 January, 7pm. You must be available for all sessions and for the performance to take part.
