When a puppet is moved by a human puppeteer, who is moving the puppeteer?
In this interdisciplinary performance piece, a relationship between puppet and puppeteer shifts fluidly throughout the piece, without keeping the conventional puppet-master hierarchy. As if reflecting our ever-changing emotion, social status, or imagination, puppetry introduces its diverse role; a manipulated object, friend, slave, missing soulmate, threat, psychological mirror, and a ritualistic vessel.
The work flows and crosses various elements; from animation and toy theatre to body movement, unconventional and traditional puppet styles, live music and choir… to weave serious, emotional, and comical moments all together.
We live in frames, real or imagined. Do they offer something worthwhile or are we fated to rail against them? Our ensemble decided to fight and fall in love with our limits by creating a show in only 7 rehearsals.
