manipulate Visual Theatre Festival 2013

We're delighted to announce the launch of the 2013 manipulate visual theatre programme. Now in its sixth year, the festival of innovative theatre, puppetry, animation and film is now open for booking.  

Presented with Puppet Animation Scotland, this cutting-edge visual theatre festival - running 4-16 February 2013 - is a truly international affair. Work is brought to you from practitioners based in Estonia, Finland, Israel, the Netherlands, Russia, USA, along with home grown artists from the UK.

The 2013 festival, presented in the Traverse's 50th year, is the most ambitious yet. Showcasing epic storytelling and exploring the future of puppetry and animation in the digital age, the work on offer spans puppetry, object theatre, animation and film. 

Highlights include Yael Rasooly's Papercut- a charming show that transforms the style of black and white cinema into a low-tech universe of paper cut-outs and animated cult classic from The Brothers Quay The Piano Tuners of Earthquakes. We've got the return of Vox Motus' 2009 Festival hit Slick, and the critically acclaimed story of Hitler and his dog, Schiklegruber…Alias Adolf Hitler. Cloud Eye Control bring us interactive media and live performance, and Finland's TIP-Connection bring us To The End of Love (pictured). For the film buffs, we have a  programme of shorts by international artists and award-winning work from graduates of Edinburgh College of Art. And there's plenty more - the festival is jam-packed with the freshest, most innovative visual theatre from around the world. Explore the full programme here.
