Without words

The disciplined life inside a cuckoo clock is thrown upside-down when an unexpected intruder mysteriously appears. Cuckoo, the clock bird, chases after it and discovers a magical world beyond time.

Running time: 45 minutes

Techniques: rod and body puppets






Trained as an actor and acrobat, Graham Soul has dedicated himself to puppet theatre for more than 25 years. His mission is to create original puppet theatre works for young audiences, highlighting artistic quality and technical innovation. Sound and visual imagery guide the dramaturgy, and the puppets and scenic elements are at the heart of the creative process. Favourite themes touch on the fantastic and the powers of the imagination.
