Sound and vision: creating a character

glueing wool to puppet

The woman puppet, who does not have a name yet (but my flatmate thinks she looks like a “Delores”), is powerful and kind. She knows what to do and has fun and laughs a lot. When she says, “no” people listen and respect her decisions. She protects her child from the father because she can see clearly he is not well; she would do whatever it takes to protect her. She is strong and capable. She has been loved by her parents and she is sensitive enough to recognise and empathise with those who haven’t or, rather, those whose parents’ love was twisted. She believes everyone deserves a second chance.
