Lost in the Woods (Italy)

Created for PIP (Production Incanti Project) and performed as part of Incanti International Figure Theatre Festival, Turin, Italy, 2012.

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm Fairy-tales, Thingumajig Theatre worked for a month with 5 young adult theatre-makers to create this hour-long piece. With puppets, masks, acting, visual theatre and music each participant brought to life the essence of their chosen piece. Woven together with a Red Riding Hood motif, the piece took a quizzical look at how stories learnt at a parent’s knee prepare a child for the adult world.

The show opened Incanti 2012 to great acclaim from festival-goers and organisers alike. 

 

Lead artists: Thingumajig Theatre directors Kathy and Andrew Kim
