Through our twenty years of experience with workshops that we have offered to vulnerable groups, teachers and the public, we have experienced the benefits of the theatrical puppet at all ages. Through it there is an occasion for play while it contains many arts and through our creative actions the participants have the opportunity to express themselves theatrically and visually while at the same time they are projecting themselves on the doll, their thoughts and feelings in an "instrument" that is at the same time enjoyable and deep.
