Professional Statement

I am continuously interested in creating opportunities to bring together the separate strands of my work in puppetry, theatre and participatory arts. I endevour to create poetic, engaging and imaginative multidisciplinary arts experiences, ranging from intimate puppet-performances to interactive open-air art installations. My work is often developed in collaboration with other artists and / or children. Working with children in community/ workshop contexts, nature and natural materials remain primary source of inspiration.
