It was really fun doing this interview with Maria. She is full of energy and ideas about her work in puppetry. Her full-length show “Maria Reads a Book” is being presented at Coney Island USA as part of their series ‘Puppets Come Home‘ curated by Brendan Schweda.
Join Maria’s spiritual / sci-fi puppet music experience to release your worries and practice play!
