Lempen Puppet Theatre: Cardboard Carnival

  • Settle Victoria Hall 24 Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DZ United Kingdom (map)

Trunk, Tail, Ears or Wings?

Carnival creates itself from all sorts of things!

 

This is "Carnival of the Animals" but not as we know it. Dissected for body part

potential to create the "ultimate animal", we take inspiration from the music by Camille Saint-Saëns, a little help from Charles Darwin and a whole lot of cardboard  to mash up a show full of puppet possibility.

Inspiration and delight for everyone from 4 to 104.

With their own inimitable style Lempen have taken the fantastic music by Camille Saint Saëns, and an exploration of the material of cardboard, to make a fun, visual production with no text, refreshingly focused on the simple magic of puppetry to leave audiences inspired by both the animal theatricality of the music and the creative potential of the simple cardboard box.

You can spend a fortune on multi-media, but it’s amazing what you can do with cardboard and paper. Superb!!!!

Individual tickets £7.50
