Puppeteer Maggie Winston blessed us with her gift of performing today at GES. In the morning she did a workshop with Division Two, bringing found objects to life. After recess she did a performance for the whole school, and had students and staff captivated. Thank-you Maggie for sharing your passion and inspiring us! Thanks also for making us laugh!
Maggie Winston is a professional puppeteer, performance artist, and drama educator. She received a Bachelor of Arts in Performance Puppetry from Sarah Lawrence College, NY and trained at the British American Drama Academy in London, UK.
Maggie’s artistic work involves individuals and communities engaging collectively to create original performances in the medium of puppetry- an art form that inherently incorporates all other art forms (theatre, visual arts, movement/choreography, music, storytelling, etc.). Inclusion, collaboration, and creative process are at the heart of Maggie’s work. Creative process is realized through an emphasis on imagination, exploration, natural impluse, and quality technique. As Artistic Director of Lost & Found Puppet Co., Maggie’s directed projects explore puppetry in all its aspects, discover stories of objects and our human relationships to them, and promote puppetry as a unique and valued art everyone can experience.
