The company Arketal was glad welcoming, in its workshop in Cannes, the young puppeteer LIN Xiaoran, coming from the Shanghai Theatre Academy of China.
She came to attend the workshop “Contemporary strings puppet theater” managed by the master Frank Soehnle.
LIN Xiaoran received one of the grants 2015 of the Commission for Professional Training of UNIMA.
This workshop was not only the subject of a report by Magali Roubaud-Soutrelle, from the French regional television FR3, that I invite you to discover, where LIN Xiaoran told few words, but, also, of an article written by Susy López Pérez, from Mexico, published in La Hoja del Titiritero # 32, the online review of the Commission for Latin America of UNIMA, which recommended us this puppeteer for the workshop.
