Scenery and Props!


It's September and that means Philly Fringe!  This month there are hundreds of live performances all around the city, some of which propped, designed, and decked their shows with materials from The Resource Exchange (two of them featured below!) You can come to the shop to see some of the scenery and props donated from Philly's performing arts community.  Plus on September 27th, come participate in a Paper and Shadow Puppetry Workshop with Fringe artist Alison Mae Hoban!



The Resource Exchange is dedicated to enabling and promoting creative reuse in local art, craft, and design. Have you reCreated with materials from RE? Send us photos with a brief description of your work -- we'll feature new works in each newsletter, online, and in our store.
reCreate featured artist: Alison Mae Hoban 
Alison is a theater artist with a focus in physical theater, mask, and puppetry.  She is also a co-creator and ensemble member of Found Theater Company.  Her artwork is made specifically for performance, mostly created with used newspaper and cardboard.  In The Resource Exchange Gallery you will see her whimsical and colorful masks made for children's theatre, plus mock-ups of the puppets she designed for "Opera Macabre: Edgar Allan Poe," an original opera by The Philadelphia Opera Collective that Alison co-wrote for this September's FringeArts.  This month Alison is also performing in Found's FringeArts piece "This is the Twilight Kingdom."  Visit her website to take a closer look at her masks and puppets!  

Friday September 27th, 4pm-7pm

A fun, FREE, evening workshop with reCreate featured artist and re staff member Alison Mae Hoban.  In this workshop participants will use recycled materials to make flat paper puppets for use in shadow and projection puppetry performance.  Learn how to make hinged paper puppets and cut scenery for both big and small shadow performances.  Use paper cutting techniques and light to play with your own shadow inside of scenes that you create!  There will be shadow stage stations set up in the store for testing out  and presenting your creations.  Never know what to do with your junk mail?  Bring it!  Mailers, especially brochures, and old theatre postcards are perfect for making shadow puppets!  Materials will also be provided.  RSVP 
thursday - saturday 10 am - 6pm, sunday  12 - 4pm
