#125 – Ann & David Powell: Puppetmongers

Since Ann Powell and David Powell founded Puppetmongers in 1974, the company has become internationally recognized as a leader and innovator in the field of puppetry. So far we have created a dozen new plays for both young and general audiences, which have earned us and our collaborators a mass of awards.

Puppetmongers continues to develop new work on their own and also in collaboration with others, and hosts an annual conference called Fresh Ideas in Puppetry for established and emerging artists to share their passion and expertise in puppetry. This year, the Fresh Ideas in Puppetry day is May 27th, at Aki Studios.

In 1996, we started The Toronto School of Puppetry to share our creative approach and provide a collaborative learning space for the puppetry community, and for multi-disciplinary artists interested in expanding their theatrical palette. We also work with students from elementary school up to the post-graduate level.

Its always been important to me that the podcast is a service to the Canadian theatre scene. Which brings the question: what does the Canadian theatre scene actually need?

@philrickaby: On this episode of @stageworthypod, I announce that after 6-ish years of producing Stageworthy on a weekly basis, that I'll be taking a bit of a break (probably a couple of months). https://t.co/qdR4m3kqnT
