Three giant puppets shaped like pairs of lips, in front of a stage, surrounded by people. They glow red.

Larissa Pinkham

Larissa is an actor, dancer, puppeteer and avid theatre maker.

In 2016 she co founded Wonderbox Theatre Collective and toured their original show ‘A Womb of Ones Own’ across the UK. Larissa’s latest creation ‘The Cornish Anarchy Mobile’ (@cornish_anarchy_mobile), was originally commissioned for Kneehigh’s Random Acts of Art in 2021. In February 2022 she received further funding to continue performing it across rural towns in Cornwall as part of The Welcome Back Fund.

Larissa fell in love with puppetry working on ‘The Hatchling’ with Mervin Millar in 2021. Inspired by the joy and the depth in which audiences of all ages connect to puppets she has since gone on to delve deeper in to the world of puppetry training at Little Angel Theatre.
