Puppet Animation Scotland
Entering their second decade, Puppet Animation Scotland are excited to present manipulate Visual Theatre Festival 2018: a dynamic and eclectic programme of Scottish and international visual and physical theatre, puppetry, object manipulation and animated film.
manipulate are particularly pleased to collaborate with Institut Français d’Écosse to present the work of four leading, award-winning French ensembles along with dynamic and challenging work and training opportunities provided by celebrated companies and artists from Belgium, Israel, Italy and the USA.
The festival has always supported the work and creative development of Scottish theatre makers, showcasing their work at all stages of its evolution. We look forward to seeing productions created by Company of Wolves, Oceanallover and Ramesh Meyyappan, as well as a Clown Cabaret Special Edition.
