We’ve moved house that’s why…..and been doing lots of shows, and playing lots of music, and creating bits and pieces here and there.
A house full of books, quirky ornaments, folders of drawings and paintings ,20 musical instruments, a workshop and loft full of 30 years of shows and puppets. No problem then.
Lots of trips to tip, charity shops, lots of freecycle ads, and all with added pressure of deadline by our buyer (long story, very boring). Endless packing of boxes. Brilliant removal blokes.
Goodbye city…hello edge of forest. Fish pond. Country walks. How lucky are we? Very!!
While all this was going on, we also did the usual schools touring,plus performances at Norwich Puppet Theatre and Polka Theatre, Wimbledon. Here’s Su in Norwich with the poster for both our shows, and also in the dressing room at Polka. Lights around the mirror. Theatrical or what?
And also…….we have been proud to be involved with the Oasis Youth Theatre group at Lordshill, Southampton, providing the puppets and a bit of manipulation help for their stunning production of Jack! This fabulously talented group of actors have already taken this self-devised take on the well-known tale through the first round of a national competition, mopping up all the prizes they could get their hands on. Who knows how far they might go on their journey to the top? here’s a couple of pics of the Jack character we made for them, from Su’s sketch to green plastic egg to rustic effect finish:
Life should settle down a bit now, and we’ll be concentrating on enjoying our new home and seeing where the wind blows us next.
