Mr Litterpicker

Meet Mr Litterpicker who has been invited by Myatt’s Field Park to entertain and educate the children around the idea of keeping the public space clean.

Before setting up for a puppet making workshop using reclaimed materials,

Outside Puppets offered an interactive performance with Mr Litterpicker as the puppet who needs some help picking up the litter to keep his favourite park clean since his eyesight is very poor(!)

The children were very helpful and went on to educate the adults.

In a Food Lab, scientists Wagner and Vladimir are attempting to create the ultimate super food aided by their psychotic drug lover guinea-pig. As the experiment progresses, the excitement grows, fumes and gazes go loose, mistakes happens and things get out of hands. The result of the experiment is nothing like what was expected…

The Experiment is a comical and satirical take on the food industry and its alchemical secrets cabaret performance using muppets and rod puppets.

Family audience (+12)

Duration: 20min

Crew: 4

Tech: A table and spotlights.

Laptop playback for sound, or we can bring portable sound.

Pendula’s Book

Pendula comes from an imaginary place in space and time. She brings us a very special book. There might be nothing written in it but there s a lesson to learn from the stories it tells us.

Pendula03

“Pendula’s book” is Outside Puppets’ latest show, devised in collaboration by Andre, Ainoa, Brendan, Ludo and Fede.

Using object animation, masks and puppets, the collective creates an imaginary world full of surprise and magic fun.

An immersive show for everyone and every age.

THE THINKER

“If you accept your shadow… then you can reclaim your light”

“The thinker” is the story of how the wounded ego must hide everything we believe that is unacceptable about ourselves; to fulfill this task the ego builds a mask to prove the rest that we don’t have so many defects. Through masks, rod puppets, muppets, giant puppets, the blending of the body with life size puppets, physical theatre, music and visual arts, “The thinker” is a multi sensorial experience.

Created out of a collaboration between puppeteer Andres Anguita, painter Jaime Valtierra, mime artist Madalena and circus performer Virginia Gamboa, the show did its first appearance in the Boom Festival in Portugal for the full moon of August 2008.
