We're thinking about the big issues. We believe in talking about complicated things with children, seriously complicated things with young people and everything with adults. We want to bridge gaps between generations and encourage communication even when it is difficult. We believe puppetry is the perfect way to start.

We want to explore and focus on communication, community, political and social issues, mental health and wellbeing, psychology and disability. We hope to work with health professionals, therapists and anthropologists in these fields to deepen our knowledge and inform our approach sensitively.
