Fast Boat to China

Next week we're off to perform in China for the first time. Why China? Well, it's the much anticipated 21st UNIMA Congress and World Puppetry Festival taking place in Chengdu from 27 May to 3 June 2012.

We have specially prepared a new production, based on our 'World of Paper and Object Theatre' featuring Brazilian puppeteer, Janice Pezzoti with Gary Friedman, who'll be accompanied by a traditional Chinese musician. The show is without language, but instead uses breathe, sound and music to communicate its message.

These performances take place at the ICH Park on 28 May on the Stage 8 Theatre. If you plan to be in Chengdu, China next week, please pop in and come see a performance.

We plan to perform this production a little later in the year at the Melbourne Fringe Festival for those that can't make it to China, so keep posted. We shall also be covering the festival with news and interviews, posted up here on our return as I'm not sure how easy it will be to do the posting live from China...Let's see!
