Cuban Artist Awarded at International Puppet Festival

YAQUI SAIZ, director of the Cuban Nueva Línea puppet group, won the Silver Prize for her individual performance during the 2nd International Puppet Festival held in Hanoi.

The young artist was awarded for her sobriety in the handling of puppets and her vocal work for the piece "Historia de Burros", according to the assessment made by the jury, composed of prestigious master puppeteers from the Asian continent.

"The prize was a surprise, because we’re talking about an Asian country, the Mecca of puppets," said Yaqui in reference to Vietnam, the Festival’s venue.

The Cuban delegation was also made up by Armando Morales, director of Cuba’s National Puppet Company, who presented “Canturía de títeres”; and Cristian Medina, director-actor of the group Retablo, from Cienfuegos province, with the piece “Pico sucio”.

Participating in the event were representatives from Egypt, Indonesia, Laos, Myanmar, the Philippines, Thailand, China and Singapore.
