Luna Morena Experimental Puppet Theatre was founded in 2001 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. The company regards puppetry as an integrated communications medium that appeals to reason, emotion, and sensitivity, and has the power to touch human spirituality.
The company’s puppet theatre creations and animated forms are complemented with other performing arts such as music, dance, performance, actors’ theatre, and stage technology. They create original visual universes and poetry that strive to captivate contemplative and sensitive souls in an environment of human coexistence.
Luna Morena’s works have been presented in Canada, China, Taiwan, the Czech Republic, Colombia, Spain, France, the United States, Scotland, and Germany.
In 2005, Luna Morena created the Festín de los muñecos, International Puppet Festival of Guadalajara.
