8th Annual
Pageant Puppetry Workshop in Northern Italy!

June 20 - 28, 2009

Morinesio's Midsummer Pageant

Join us for a one-week workshop in pageant puppetry, culminating in a
community procession for the Summer Solstice and the Feast of St.
John the Baptist. Collaborate with international participants and
local residents to to create an event grounded in the ritual
traditions of Morinesio, a remote village in the Piedmont region of
the Italian Alps.

Master Puppeteers Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles (official puppet
designers for New York's legendary Village Halloween Parade) will
lead the classes, drawing inspiration from the folklore and oral
histories of the village. Local residents will act as guides to the
culture of the Val Maira, leading side trips to a local cheese farm,
Occitan step-dancing lessons, and perhaps even a morning of bread
baking in the communal stone oven.

The workshop will be hosted by Christa and Fritz Gaebler at Casa dei
Fiori, an authentically restored complex of traditional stone
farmhouses. An international chef, Christa will introduce
participants to the delicate tastes of Northern Italian summer, with
gourmet meals prepared daily from local produce and mountain cheeses.
