Recording Punch and Judy the Movie

I’ve been assisting Layla Holzer with production of her latest film project, Punch and Judy.

We previously collaborated to produce a traditional Punch and Judy glove puppet show as a part of the Pack of Wolves’ Once Upon Again exhibition. You can view a video of that performance here.

Layla’s latest interpretation of Punch and Judy combines live performance with puppetry to explore themes of gender conflict and patriarchy. You can see a an image of Layla dressed as Punch wielding her phallic club above.

As well as being behind the camera for this project I also provided the irritating nasal voice for Punch. You can listen to a snippet of my audio below.
