I was invited to give a talk about Puppetry & Disability, had an exhibition of some of my own puppets and that of students: Pascale De Coninck, Lorraine Shanahan, Louise Clarke, Wendy Livingston, collaboration puppet with Spark Deeley, and the installation by Dominic Fee.
It was an honour to be asked to take part in this international festival, to see some amazing shows and to be supported by friends and strangers to make this event possible for me. Póilin Puppet - and myself, made some new friends.
See links to the short videos which were shown on a loop during the exhibition/festival.
