    Scottish premiere
    Invisible Thread

    Two intimate one-act table-top puppetry pieces from one of the UK’s leading experimental puppetry companies - Catmother (45min) an experimental, toy theatre style re-telling of a scary Victorian children’s tale, set to a live played double bass score. Bewitching and chilling, it also has an unusual performance feature.

    Les Hommes Vides (25min) is a charming and eerie performance of slapstick puppetry and object theatre, featuring scenes of death defying plank action, existential angst, poetry and prizes.
