Imago Theater’s La Belle et La Bette

Scroll down to content

Gilda maquette. My initial version.
Jerry Mouawad, the director, changed some details to match his style.
Here’s Big Gilda, straight from the CNC machine.
Prototype puppet heads I made for the Prince and the King. Jerry chose the two on the left and didn’t alter them.
Kings come in all sizes
One of the Belle puppets I made. She moved her head, dropped her right arm, raised her left arm, sat up straight, and stood up. Controlled by four cables. I did not make her face or hands. Erin Chmela did her hair.
Belle’s chair. No bottom so her mechanism can fit.

Transforming witch puppet, sans costume. Jerry’s sculpts. My mechs.
A quick demo of what she does.
Caution: Indelicate language.
