Symon Macintyre

Artistic Director

Symon Macintyre is a producer and director with a reputation for innovative dramatic work, often striving to challenge the conceived limits of "puppetry", as a hybrid dramatic form. His recent projects have been typically wide-ranging, including the acclaimed puppet-drama, EH6, and award winning street theatre event, "Ghost". Symon is bursting with even more inspiration and more contagious enthusiasm than ever.

Rachael Macintyre

BMW Event Manager

Rachael has been brought up in a world of puppetry. Although managing to stay away during her teens, she couldn’t deny her passion after becoming part of Big Man Walking as one of his puppeteers. Now it’s 2010, Big Man wants to keep on walking and Rachael is going to make that happen. For more information on booking Big Man Walking please contact Rachael.

Indira Kemp

Company Manager

Indira Kemp danced her way into the Puppet Lab in 2008 as part of a Tam O'Shanter R&D project for a shadow-puppet-come-Indian-dance interpretation called Run, Tam, Run. Since then she has been gradually absorbed in to the world of puppets and puppetry, becoming the Puppet Lab's Company Manager in January 2009. She continues to pursue her dance career and is happy to be adding a "puppeteering" string to her creative bow.
