92 THE LIST '2.~ Mar—1C7 Am 203.3

The Puppet Animation Festival is now in its 20th year and with nearly 250 performances, reaching wider audiences than ever before. We asked director Simon Hart for one of this year’s highlights: ‘L’Intrus (‘The lntruder’) I think will be very interesting. It's presented by a leading French company. It’s a lovely story about a little bear who hibernates and wakes up to find that a factory's been built over the top of his den. As part of the festival we’re always looking to develop our international contacts so that Scottish puppeteers see the best of European puppetry.’ And here is The List's guide to what’s on in your neck of the woods.
