Avye Leventis

"Sandra developed a wonderful, trusting working relationship with Avye Leventis, one of the puppeteers. Every move was based on what Sandra wanted to do, and it just became a natural, flowing thing. Avye really took charge of the movement so Sandra could concentrate on the whole performance".
