We make hand crafted puppets & puppet theatre for adults and children.
Animism is the ancient and long-forgotten belief of life in all things. We make this reality through puppetry and theatre of animation. When someone watches a puppet, something magical happens – they believe in the unbelievable and connect on an almost supernatural level. The attention is electric. This is the reason we work with this art form.
We also believe humans are brilliant and have a common good that binds us all. Through our work we celebrate and exaggerate this bond, whether it is through the stories we tell or the shared experience of live performance.
We are not limited by our art form and are constantly seeking new collaborations to challenge and evolve what theatre can be and how it can be experienced. Be it through interdisciplinary collaborations or taking puppetry out into the streets and unusual locations.
