Life’s Work, Part XXXIV

Sarah, Puppeteer, London

When I first began emailing around to find interesting subjects for this project in London, one person gave me the names of two puppeteers.  The email included a warning though: Sarah Wright and Mark Down are “Puppetry Royalty,” and you shouldn’t really expect to get them.  But they both kindly said yes.  (Mark Down will be on the next blog post in this series).  

Sarah Wright is a puppeteer, puppet director, teacher and puppet maker.  She has worked around the world, on stage and in film and television. You can find out more about her and her work on her website, here: http://silent-tide.com
