The Awesome Puppet Company was founded in 2000 as a vehicle for creative expression that would allow us to integrate our core interests of puppetry and storytelling. The central idea is to offer a transformational experience that entertains, educates, communicates and touches people’s lives.
We are inspired by the myths and stories of world cultures and the magical properties of puppetry. We design and make all the puppets, coaxing the innate beauty, patterns and textures from the materials. Puppets vary from finger-size to life-size and larger, and are intended to inspire through simplicity of invention and expressiveness.
Since 2001 we have performed shows and run creative workshops for adults and children locally and internationally. The project is a work-in-progress and is committed to promoting global well being based on shared and enduring values.
