About the Event
Puppeteer Brett Hansen shows off some puppets and talks about his lifelong dream to become a professional puppeteer. He describes how he discovered the New Enterprise Incentive Scheme, and how he started 'Larrikin Puppets' through this program. We learn what NEIS involved and how Brett turned his hobby into a full time business, leading to the NEIS Awards three years later. Brett talks about his formal training overseas with Jim Henson puppeteers from The Muppets and Sesame Street, and the steady rise of Larrikin Puppets over eight years performing puppet shows, running puppetry workshops and his film and TV work.
