My first gig with Polyglot

My first gig with Polyglot was working as a maker assisting with the making and maintenance of props and sets for The Little Prince in 1997. I recall walking into the Cromwell Road theatre and meeting Ken the set designer, and Mischa Long, a performer, who I would later work with on a number of gigs touring Australia and overseas over the next 20 years and still going. We began at Polyglot working in a traditional theatre indoors with puppets performing for children, and evolved to performing often outdoors creating work with children by 2018.
