Prince Amponsah & Viktor Lukawski
LIMBS is a project that is the beginning of important research: to redefine puppetry through a differently-abled body, and what it means to manipulate without the use of one’s hands. It is a collaboration between two theatre artists, Prince Amponsah and Viktor Lukawski, who are trying to develop a project that they have yet to experience in the world of puppetry and visual theatre.
Prince Amponsah is a performer currently residing in Toronto and since graduating from the George Brown Theatre program, he has gone on to garner credits for performance on the stage and screen with some including: KILLJOYS (SYFY); The Things You Think I’m Thinking (Meraki Moving Pictures); The Threepenny Opera (Sick+Twisted and AA Battery Theatre) and SHEETS (Veritas Theatre) here at The Theatre Centre and most recently Station 11(HBOMax).
Viktor Lukawski is a theatre director, actor, and puppeteer who was born in Poland and raised in Canada. He is the Artistic Director of ZOU theatre company in Toronto and is a member of French-Norwegian company, Plexus Polaire. He is a graduate of École Jacques Lecoq in Paris, France, and Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada.
