Performance Desperately in Need of an Audience

Performance Desperately In Need Of An Audience: To be performed by the Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation, this is a tale of exile into the world where thousands chose to bear the burden of migration, leaving behind their homes and loved ones, in the hopes of finding themselves human again beyond the seas. A silent performance, it bends the rules of puppet theatre, as stage props and settings becomes puppets as well. From the farm animals cowering in the villages, to the raining missiles and overhead airplanes, to the little suitcase that’s all packed up but refuses to leave. Employing humour, lightness, magic, playfulness and satire, the horrors of exile are rendered more accessible and touching. Taking place 17 June, 2018 at the Courtyard Theatre, 40 Pitfield St, London N1 6.
