Details

Presented by Indigo Moon Theatre and Compagnie Via Cane

If Shakespeare and Moli?re were our contemporaries what would they write about migrants today? A wave of migrants has landed on French and English shores, all hoping for a better life. Grandeur and decadence, social upheaval and love affairs are brought to life by a puppeteer from each country, each in the role of a border guard… a highly visual bilingual production, applying classic texts to very modern migration.

Using table–top puppetry, acting , objects, live cued music & projection, this show concerns the migrant crisis and abuse of power … even more relevant in today's political climate.. and puts into question the role of Shakespearean witches reincarnated in the form of Weapons, Media and Money.
