Just Add Water
Puppet Designer and Maker
An under-water tale set in the 'Museum of the Drowned World' with a legion of puppets, large and small. I led the team creating a giant diving suit, a diver marionette, and three swooping manta rays. After its debut in and around the Bute Theatre at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, the production toured to the Prague Quadrennial in the Czech Republic.

The diver was operated by three people, one person inside. The rays had a bent rod mechanism to create gently undulating wings.
