I am currently working on a production called 'The Call Of The Wild' making puppets from cardboard. The production has been put on by Blind Summit who have translated this epic story into a "Cardboard Puppet Arctic Ballet" set to Mahler's 1st Symphony.
The Call of the Wild is the classic story of Buck, a dog stolen from the comfort of his California home and thrust into the merciless life of a sledge dog in the Yukon Gold Rush in 1897. He has to quickly learn the laws of the wild and while the men around him descend into depravity, corrupted by their desire for gold, he is ennobled by the experience.
Last week I made a daschund (sausage dog) which is actually my favourite dog! I am currently in the process of making a cardboard train for the journey to alaska scene.
