Performance Desperately in Need of an Audience

Presented by: The Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation

Thu 19th Apr 2018

Price: £8.00 - £12.00

Running time: 55 minutes

Ages: 16+

This is a tale as bittersweet as exile itself, set on a war-torn shore where attempts at pursuing everyday activities, the banal, the necessary, the entertaining and the essential, are as dangerous as impossible.

Barely surviving, it seems that leaving behind one’s home and loved ones in the hope of finding one’s humanity again beyond the seas, seems like the only card left to bet on.

This silent performance bends the rules of puppet theatre as stage props and settings become puppets as well; from the farm animals cowering in the villages, to the chatty missiles and overhead airplanes, to the little heavy-hearted suitcase that’s all packed up – but refuses to leave.
