The 2008 UNIMA World Puppetry Festival wrapped up last weekend in Perth, Australia. Fortunately for those of us who couldn’t attend, several puppeteer/bloggers were at the festival shooting video, taking pictures and blogging almost daily. A few street performances from the festival were recorded and can be found on YouTube. Gary Friedman was in Perth and has been posting commentary and videos on his Puppetry News blog. Also blogging the festival were Naomi and Hil, who has a nice photoset from the festival on Flickr.
