Steve Tiplady

Steve has been a puppeteer for the last 20 years. He is currently working with the RSC and Improbable Theatre; he is the Artistic Director of the Little Angel Theatre and runs his own company Indefinite Articles in his spare time!

Steve has animated everything from sellotape & wooden spoons, through to grains of sand.

‘Puppets are for children. Puppets are safe. Puppets are sweet. However, if you think about it, puppets can do anything you want them to do; in fact more than actors. I am keen to explore where this can take you in performance. What is a puppet? What can be animated?’

His laboratory will explore the extremes of the puppetry arts, including manipulation of shadows, objects, materials and figures. This is a rare opportunity to work with Steve.
