The Per Poc puppet company is directed by Santi Arnal and Anna Fernández, who have worked together for more than 25 years on the international scene creating outstandingly beautiful and original staged pieces.
Their works, which combine the world of puppetry with musical composition have been co-produced with renowned cultural institutions including the Gran Teatre del Liceu de Barcelona (The Little Sweep, by Benjamin Britten), Radio France (Petrushka, by Igor Stravinsky) and Orchestre National de Lille (Master Peter’s Puppet Show, by Manuel de Falla).
Per Poc presents a different way to bring symphonic music to new audiences.
The performing arts, visual arts, music and dance all form part of our shows, together creating their own special poetry.
