He's back together! Hippie is rejuvenated and rockin' out to some Blind Melon.

Warning! NSFW! Naked hippie!
Though, it's probably his preferred state, easier to commune with nature, maaaaan. So Hippie is now 26 years old and looking pretty good for it. Admittedly, he's been sleeping in a shoe box for a big chunk of that time. Anyway, as I've been recently thinking about marionettes, I decided to give him some TLC. The hemp string I used all those years ago has somewhat deteriorated and so a refresher is required. I also never got round to making a controller for him so that's on the to do list too!

Jessica will be experimenting with how puppetry can be used inVerbatim Theatre and the impact the puppet has on the audience when dealing with strong themes and Social Issues - specifically looking at Social Media's impact on young people's mental health. Jessica performed an early idea using the same Social Issue and Shadow Theatre, mixing puppetry and performer silhouettes at the Manipulate Festival 2018, programmed by Puppet Animation Scotland.
"A moving and important production that will only increase in importance as we continue to educate ourselves and the young generations on how to stay mentally safe online."
- Edinburgh Guide
