Ironic

Ironic that being a theatre director , performer and maker it all gets too  busy, all at once, and it is hard to get to actually see other pieces of theatre, events and shows. Managed to catch On Bear Ridge at the Sherman but that is a  4 hour round trip. Wanting to see Monolith at the Principality Stadium but booked and working  on those days. i should post up our events as we have 3 or even 4 lantern parades ending up with the 4th Cardigan lantern parade that attracted over 10,000 people last…See More

Projects I’m working on:
The Lightning Path is our latest touring show for families Wonderfull puppets with input from me, Ann and Toby, animation is spectacular, its always great to work with Sean Vicary and this show seems to go down really well with audiences. So climate change ,being swamped by plastic and a flying hare bringing mild super powers to the main protagonist seems to strike chord. the last show for adults "One Way Street" a puppet noir experience. A theatre production with puppets and animation in B/W adult puppetry, noir themes and stunning visuals. Set in west coast America and Wales. Another show still available is Tales of the Taiga. Shadow puppets, actors telling a Nani (Siberian) traditional story with references to the disappearing habitats and languages and culture of indigenous peoples of the frozen forest regions of planet earth. With large sturgeon and tiger puppets and shadow puppetry.
