How did a puppet scientist become a celebrity with his own catch-phrase? What was the role of puppets in the banking crisis? How are puppets helping to solve global warming? Blind Summit are currently spending time with their puppet characters listening to their memoirs.
Featuring their trademark "extreme puppetry", Blind Summit will perform the first of the monologues from a collection currently in development.
'Blind Summit have proved that puppetry doesn't have to come either with apologies or strings attached.' The Guardian

Sylvie Dee - eco-activist, self-appointed orphan and party planner for the entire estate - has disappeared. Completely.
Will you help us find her? Blue is an interactive mystery, combining lyrical new writing, vivid contemporary puppetry and beautiful original music in an evocative new tale of the green in our roots and the blue in our hearts. This is a promenade piece with only 20 audience members per performance.
'Magical...Fresh and full of images that stay with me even now' ???? Fringe Review

Everyday tasks - the washing, cooking, cleaning and laundry, take on epic proportions as puppeteer Isobel Smith struggles to ritualise and subvert their readings - liberating them from their hum-drum existence in the spirit of 'El duende' evoking something powerful and extraordinary in the process.
A performance that turns everyday mundane tasks into an extraordinary, visual theatrical adventure using object manipulation, puppetry, lighting and shadow.

Albert Grimlake sits in his cobwebbed shop surrounded by his puppets, each face lovingly crafted by his own hand.
But Grimlake is growing old. Time is running out to find a successor, someone to breathe life into his creations, someone who shares his peculiar passion for puppets... Enter Eric: The Perfect Applicant. He's young, loves The Muppets and is eager to learn.

Two people meet, nothing extraordinary yet, except... She can't speak and he can't read but through chance, miscommunication and the help of coincidence, two people meeting becomes extraordinary. This is a bizarre tale told through Smoking Apples' identifiable style of puppetry, physical theatre and original music.
'If you haven't experienced a Smoking Apples show yet to enlivened your imagination, I suggest you do so as early as you can. It's wonderful to experience.' London Fringe Review
