Linh Valerie Pham '15 was interviewed about her work as a puppet artist andfounder of the first puppet collective in Hanoi, Mat Tran Ensemble. "I see myself as a storyteller, and puppetry as something beyond dancing with the ‘caricatures’. To me, puppetry is a way to explore breathing and extending the intimacy between puppeteers and puppets in order to tell stories in motion with images, movement and imagination. Just like other art forms, puppetry resembles alchemy, in which it transforms, matures and perfects certain objects and materials."
