Rebekah’s academic research explores the animism placed on objects through the synergy of manipulation and sound, and the audiences desire to see the inanimate live. This is not only demonstrated in the object/puppets she creates, but also through extensive improvisation and collaboration with musicians, found sound and interdisciplinary artists.

This ephemeral performance based research is investigated at Animate LIVE; a bi-monthly evening of improvisation at Slunglow’s The HUB. At which professional puppeteers and musicians collaborate and improvise together using objects and abstract materials as stimulus.
