BEATTIE (Puppetry Supervisor, Maker and Puppeteer)

Daisy’s passion in puppetry lies in exploring exciting avenues for storytelling and visual communication, creating unique experiences for wider audiences of all ages in theatre, film and television.


Influenced by puppets from a young age, the fascination with the ancient craft developed into a career focused on learning innovative technology, whilst also looking back at history and tradition in the art of making puppets and their use in communicating both complex emotions and simple narratives. This is what makes puppetry so powerful in her opinion.

Daisy enjoys collaborating with companies and individuals who want to explore new ways of bringing puppetry into performances that would not normally use puppets. This background of puppet designing, making and puppeteering has led to the development of the role of puppet supervisor for theatre productions.


Daisy is an associate of the theatre company Gyre & Gimble and shares their testimonial to ‘place puppetry at the heart of storytelling’.
