Cardboard Carnival

The Carnival of The Animals

Swindon Arts Centre

Sun 23 February 2020

WT: Cardboard Carnival

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.

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company tour their own unique brand of original stories told with puppets. Imaginative, spellbinding, surprising and sometimes bonkers, Lempen focus on puppetry, storytelling, light, music and a journey that takes the audience there and back again. They are inspired to make theatre by Myth and Folklore, crazy characters, what makes us laugh and what we care about. They aim to produce quality productions for family audiences that connect the real world to the world of imagination.

Running times 50 minutes, no interval.
