Maria Manasi works as a puppeteer and environmental pedagogue in Vertiscos (Greece). On the way that leads from “nest” to “nest”, we get to know how to be in touch with nature, but also with our imagination and a bit of wilderness.
“In puppetry, I can see and create a world that is different, better, and that gives me great joy.” “When you allow time for a process to progress, you see huge changes. And this is something incredibly optimistic. Changes can occur if we allow time for them to occur.”
Marmita puppets is a puppet theatre company. Their performances are dealing with environmental themes, among many other topics. https://marmitapuppets.com/ https://www.facebook.com/marmitapuppets Zlap is a forest pedagogy initiative founded and working in Vertiscos.
