Tamara Rewse


Tamara is a puppeteer and puppet maker who has worked on award-winning works for children with Windmill Theatre, Lemony S Puppet Theatre and object theatre troupe Men of Steel.

It gives her immense joy to work at Polyglot, embracing the chaos and order of play-based theatre. Tamara has had the great fortune of working with many kids over the years, and she feels that they are the best barometers of sincerity. This has contributed so much to the way she chooses to work.

As a Polyglot artist for over 10 years, Tamara has grown up with the company. Making Manguri Wiltja – the collaboration between Polygot, Tjanpi Desert Weavers and FORM – was one of the most memorable and affecting projects she has ever created.

Acknowledgment of country

Polyglot acknowledges that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live and create, and we pay our respects to Elders past and present. For more than 65,000 years, children and families have created and played here, and we are grateful to make our art on this country too.
