Toby Olié

Puppetry Director & Designer

Toby is a director and designer puppetry, a passion that has developed since making his first puppets at the age of six
Through his work spanning plays, musicals, opera and dance, Toby strives to blur the boundaries between movement and design. He daringly fuses traditional and innovative techniques, creating compelling characters that lead audiences through fantastical, improbable and even impossible stories. Works include: Spirited Away (Imperial Theatre, Tokyo), Animal Farm (UK tour), 101 Dalmatians (Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), Pinocchio (National Theatre), and Disney’s The Little Mermaid (in Tokyo, Moscow and The Netherlands).
