Wise Fool New Mexico is excited to offer our first ever IGNITE! street theater arts intensive workshop for adults and teens from August 27 to September 9th, 2017 on weeknights and Saturday afternoons.
In this two-week workshop, participants will learn how to build giant puppets, stilt-walk, design and paint banners and other large scale visuals. We'll also explore storyboarding, choreographic pageantry and characters for outdoor spectacles, demonstrations and community events.
