Cutting Pages

PRESENTED ON DEC 13, 2013
IN HONOLULU @ VOL 19

Charlene Asato joins us from the Big Island and has enjoyed creating with paper for many years. She finds it very exciting that a simple fold changes a two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional form and artist’s books provide a wonderful avenue to convey this energy.

Puppetry in Paradise

BY DANIELLE HENDERSON
@ VOL 20 ON APR 19, 2017

"All creative journies start somewhere. Mine began in a paper cutting workshop..." 

In "Puppetry in Paradise" from PechaKucha Night Cairns Vol. 20,  Danielle Henderson is trained in theatre, performance and media arts. She is a passionate entertainer, writer/ storyteller and occasional singer living in Cairns, Far North Queensland.  Since becoming a mother her attention has turned to visual art forms, specifically Scherenschnitte, or silhouette paper cutting. Her work is exceptionally detailed and has a pure uncomplicated visual appeal which lends itself poetically to shadow play. In 2013 Danielle wrote and performed I Live Here - a shadow puppet theatre experience for children.
Seeking more colourful and less solitary creative engagements she has more recently facilitated a community arts project for children and families. Her latest work is pushing her interest in puppet making into 3 dimensions.
