September 27, 2009

In Everything Will Be Okay Sayraphim Lothian joins Robert Reid to perform a sixty minute show of tabletop puppetry. The performance is the surreal conception of Reid, artistic director of Melbourne’s Theatre in Decay. As I entered the theatre for the performance, the usher advised that I should, “Listen with my eyes, and see with […]

Fringe Fringe Fringe

September 27, 2009

Our Fringe show Everything Will Be Ok is going really well. We’re playing to extremely appreciative audiences, they hang around afterwards and ask lots of questions, about the ideas behind it, about the puppetry involved, about how long it took to build, all sorts of things. They tell us that it’s absorbing and magical, which […]

In the next week there’s going to be a Surprise Piggy tutorial and a cloth doll tute (I haven’t thought of a funky name for her yet) and I’m really looking forward to sharing those with you! But until then, I figured I’d share some photos from the play I designed that’s just finished, This […]

Theatre and toys

November 17, 2008

Oh, it has been a very busy week, mostly craftwise! I have built, sewn, glued and created more props for the play and we’re now on the home stretch. Once the show is down, I’ll put some photos up here of these nicely crafty props, but y’all have to wait til then, otherwise it’ll spoil […]
