Jo Munton is a puppeteer, poet and performer, who has worked with many different people in many different places, from Llandrindod wells (Big Democracy National Theatre Wales) to Siberia (tour with puppet company Clogless Lobster), from Birmingham (creating a puppet animation with Cerebral Palsy Midlands) to Spain (firm favorites at Casa de los Cuentos) from Butetown, Cardiff (DeGabay, NTW) to Bangor (Blas – Pontio).
This year she applied for and received a ‘go see’ bursary to undertake ‘mini mentorship’ with Festive Road to collaborate and guide her to create a bespoke giant hare for a show of ‘Melangell’ at the National Eisteddfod of Wales. Below is a detailed account of her experience.
