Teresa and Joan decide to dedicate themselves professionally to the show and start in the puppet theater where they can develop their respective skills, fusing modelling, painting, writing, acting, voice, design of space and objects.

They founded the company PUTXINEL·LIS CLACA which years later, in 1975, became TEATRE DE LA CLACA and where they create and interpret numerous visual shows with puppets, objects and images for family and adult audiences:
