Outside Puppets, the brainchild of sculptor and puppeteer Andreas Anguita, a London based inter-disciplinary collective of artists who met through a shared passion for puppetry and visual theatre.
Visual artists and performers, circus artists, video and sound sculptors, dancers, acrobats, animators, musicians, mimes, actors, together we train and play, we share and learn, we seek to support and heal. This is the form of our social and political activism.
We started making puppets out of recyclables and daily life used objects, bringing to life the unwanted, the rejected, as a statement of acceptance, will and hope.
Everywhere we go, we engage with audiences using creativity to empower, express and entertain.
Outside puppets is a breath of air when you need it most, a reminder of the simple relief of a magical dream or a smile.
