Puppeteer Barnaby Dixon Shares His Fascination With the Wonder of Movement

Great Big Story visited with Barnaby Dixon, the talented puppeteer behind the brilliant dancing warrior MANU along with other the equally wonderful puppets Dabchick and Dinosaur, who shared his fascination with the wonder of movement.
