Five Questions with Marla Limousin, Presenter at Puppet Power 2016 :: Connecting Generations Conference
How do you connect generations and/or communities with puppetry?
“Puppetry becomes a medium that generations can connect. In the communities that I have worked in, we have connected artists, youth and Elders to create a common work. I have always focused on the classics so to speak. The Classics are the legends and they are so engaging on so many levels. They teach and entertain at the same time. Some legends explain the world around you, some scare the heck out of you and other are just there to entertain. Through visuals we can interpret language in a 3D format.”
