Puppets are believed to have originated about 3,000 years ago. They have been used in theatre, in ceremonies, rituals and in celebrations in different cultures around the world. From ritualistic dramas in secret societies in Africa to Japanese Bunraku Puppetry and Vietnam’s Water Puppetry to medieval Italy’s morality plays, puppetry has a rich and ancient history in different human cultures.
GERRARD ART SPACE is a community focused, membership driven, dedicated art space. Our mandate is to support, promote and facilitate the creation of a variety of art forms, including visual, performance, music, poetry, spoken word and film.
Regular programming includes workshops, classes, and shows that engage neighbourhood residents and the Toronto art community. GAS prioritizes accessibility, inclusivity, and open dialogue in both its programming and outreach, working to build and sustain a creative, vibrant community.
