In their very own rock’n roll style, the puppetry innovators behind Blind Summit Theatre combine Samuel Beckett’s dark humour with Ikea’s flat packaging system.
Moses is a cantankerous three-man operated puppet that lives on a table. He is in the throes of an existential crisis as the show opens with the reluctant puppet’s epic biblical account of life, death … and puppetry. But he is easily distracted and the show gets out of hand. The table-top philosopher and comedian engages the audience with his colourful observations on a puppet’s life.
DURATION: 1h10 min
Blind Summit Theatre’s work is rooted in the Japanese tradition of Bunraku where three puppeteers perform a single character. Thanks to finely detailed movements, an intimate and very personal universe is created, where the characters’ thoughts come to life through the impetus of the puppeteers’ actions.
With a repertoire of over 30 productions, Blind Summit Theatre is a world-renowned reference in the puppetry arts.
