Galapagos Puppets

Meet the magical Monkey King, a spry three hundred year-old tomte grandmother, and a fairy builder. Galapagos Puppets' characters are windows into folktales, fantasies and historical stories.

Galapagos Puppets was founded in 1987 by Margaret Moody and Madeleine Beresford, and named for the Galapagos Islands, a habitat for many peaceful and unusual creatures. Madeleine and Margaret perform together and also offer solo performances and workshops.

We studied with Taiwan's master puppeteer Li Tien-lu and the I Wan Jan troupe, and use traditional Chinese puppets and choreography in several shows. 

We bring a love of history and heritage to our performances. For more information, please see galapagospuppets.com and our blog, http://galapagospuppets.blogspot.com.
