Death of Miguel Arreche

My Dear UNIMA members, National Centers and friends of puppetry around the world,

It is with deep sorrow and grief that we inform you about the very sudden passing away of our beloved Miguel Arreche last night 11th October 2013.

Miguel Arreche former UNIMA Secretary General (2000-2008) was a great friend of the puppetry world. He gave all within him to serve UNIMA. Amongst many of his achievements, during his term with former President Margareta Niculescu he managed to bring alive WEPA, the World Encyclopedia of Puppetry Arts and regenerate our organisations destiny with intelligence and rigor.

His tireless efforts and work saw the realization of TOPIC one of the world’s most beautiful puppetry centers, a proof of where there is a will there will always be a way to achieve things.

His passing away is a great loss to UNIMA and Puppeteers around the world. Miguel’s smile, the mischievous twinkle in his eyes and his love, will remain with all he touched in his life on this earth.

Our deepest condolences to all his family and friends

Dear Miguel RIP.

„The Moving Finger writes; and, having writ,

Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit

Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,

Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.“
