Two intimate one-act table-top puppetry pieces from one of the UK’s leading experimental puppetry companies.

Catmother (45′) an experimental, toy-theatre style re-telling of a scary Victorian children’s tale, set to a live-played double bass score. Bewitching and chilling, it also has an unusual performance feature.

Les Hommes Vides (25′) is a charming and eerie performance of slapstick puppetry and object theatre, featuring scenes of death-defying plank action, existential angst, poetry and prizes.
