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.
With their own inimitable style Lempen have taken the fantastic music by Camille Saint-Saëns, and an exploration of the material of cardboard, to make a fun, visual production with no text, refreshingly focused on the simple magic of puppetry to leave audiences inspired by both the animal theatricality of the music and the creative potential of the simple cardboard box.
“Lempen always makes things magic – a very special quality!”
