Monique Grund is Director of Magic Lantern Marionette Theater and a master kindergarten teacher at the San Francisco Waldorf School for over 35 years. This is the voice of Monique, speaking about the art of puppetry, performance, and the Magic Lantern Marionette group's preparations for the 2013 live performance of "The Princess Mermaid," a story that takes place beneath the waves.
Monique conceived, wrote, and directed this unique marionette performance especially for the children living by San Francisco Bay. She brings to it an energy and creativity that belie her 75 years, and with the artistry of colleagues and friends creates an underwater world full of movement and meaning.
