Puppet Regimes

"A friend once called puppetry the ugly stepchild of theater," says Portuges. "It's a very difficult way to make a living. People don't know what goes into it. They forget that it's an art, but there's no doubt about it. Puppetry is art. I wouldn't do anything else."

No one in the guild would disagree.

"My mother used to say," laughs Coultier, "if you tied my hands up, I'd never talk again. For me, this is it."
