Marionetas de Mandrágora hidden Portuguese treasures

Why is it that foreign languages frighten so many Anglophone web browsers away from a truly inspiring website? Because some find a new language as poetic and inspiring as 'Portuguese' truly frightening? Well, get over it and you'll discover so many hidden treasures on the web and the high-creative Lisbon-based puppet company, Marionetas de Mandrágora, must be one of them.
When Portuguese puppeteer Filipa Mesquita wrote to me this week and referred me to their two blog sites, I was quite astonished that I had not discovered their great work before. Their blogs can be found here and their Puppet Building blog here. Do take a look!

I there! Thanks for the post. Just a small detail, ... we're from the North and not the South of Portugal. Not that it should mater but well...
