Welcome to the magical world of Puppetry

Trailer by Jake Chapman

"...A magical and captivating twenty-minute non-verbal object theatre piece in which a series of beautiful and minimally worked pieces of driftwood, twisted pieces of roots, pheasant tails, leaves and bones which become alive as mythical creatures.  A dragon crosses the moon and a tiny warrior dreams of flying on it… A lovely introduction to the possibilities of object theatre"  TOTAL MAGAZINE THEATRE (England)
