The Death of Juliet Agustin, director of the Puppet Center in Lleida

Juliet died last Friday. A car accident in Llardecans (Segrià, Lleida). 59 years.

His death leaves a great void in the cultural world, and in my heart.

I met Juliet when two years ago I was invited to give a lecture as part of the Fira de Teatre de Titelles of Lleida (of which she was the director). At that point, I was struck by its vitality and way of working, enthusiastic and completely turned over to others. An extraordinary woman, unusual. With a personality and a way of being, that leaves a mark in the heart of anyone who crosses her. I was no exception. We continued to see the months following our meeting, and whenever I've been through Lleida I dropped by the Puppet Center to say hello.

She, her husband and his team at the Center have been doing a lot of work towards the dissemination of this art and its professionalization. Every corner of the former Convent of Santa Teresa (present site of the Puppet Center) bears his imprint. Each small project of many that are made there is a part of it. Continue your legacy will be tough.

My deepest condolences to her husband and family.

A big hug.
