Corina Bona

Corina Bona started life in Caracas, Venezuela. Thanks to her fathers work, she then moved with her family to Colombia, Mexico, USA, UK, Argentina and Switzerland. This international lifestyle has helped contribute to the many languages and accents that she loves to imitate. She settled in Bristol on 2000 to study and has been here ever since. Known more  commonly as Cori, she is a puppeteer, Maker and Workshop facilitator. She is passionate about Puppetry and its power to entertain, educate and mystify. Cori has worked as a Puppeteer for over five years with reputable local and international companies. She loves teaching others how to bring puppets to life and make them from scratch. She also enjoys collaborating with other artist and companies to make puppets and performances.
