There has been much pan-banging, laundry-hanging fun preparing the first show:
Our heroine, a worn out housewife, driven by the desperate need for a cup of tea, must leave the house and go in search of milk…
Her quest takes on epic proportions as everyday tasks – from a mountain of washing up to an overflowing laundry basket – become an extraordinary, twisted visual theatrical adventure using object manipulation, puppetry, lighting and shadow.
Developed during a Puppet Centre residency at Nuffield Theatre and supported by Arts Council England.
‘To feel epic and frail, to be both beautiful and grotesque.’
Christina the Astonishing explores personal psychotic states and heightened worlds of the foolish artist with references to Christina, Patron Saint of Mental Illness.
A unique collaboration between artist The Baron Gilvan and puppeteer Isobel Smith, of ‘Grist to the Mill’. Crossing genres of painting, puppetry, animation and video mapping.
Developed out of fledgling ideas during Little Angel Theatre’s INCUBATE programme and supported by Arts Council England.
