About me

A brief account of how Aritz Asteinza came to be pulling the strings of this project:

1997 A technician with the Opera of Bilbao, his home town.

1998 He studies art in Barcelona where he becomes involved with Tramoya of the Liceo Theatre

2006-2013 While living in an alternative community in Croatia he makes his first puppets which he takes with him on his return to Barcelona where he joins Pepé Otals’ puppet workshop.

2015 finds Aritz in at Pinerlo in Italy, learning the art of puppet construction from Stephen Motram.

The same year finds him where you will find him now, Bagnères de Bigorre, a small but dynamic spa town in the foothills of the Pyrenees.
