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.
. Plus loads of shows cabarets and music and film collaborations gigs and master-classes at our Small World Theatre in Cardigan
