‘A Performance Desperately in Need of an Audience’ is a silent play that bends the rules of puppet theatre. Stage props and settings become puppets, setting the scene of a war-torn shore where attempts at pursuing everyday activities are as dangerous as impossible.

The performance follows two characters, who, barely surviving their day to day realities, must decide whether or not to leave behind their home and loved ones in the hope of finding one’s humanity again beyond the seas.

This is a tale of exile, into the world where thousands chose to bear the burden of migration, leaving behind their homes and loved ones, in the hopes of finding themselves human again beyond the seas.

This silent performance bends the rules of puppet theatre, as stage props and settings becomes puppets as well. From the farm animals cowering in the villages, to the raining missiles and overhead airplanes, to the little suitcase that’s all packed up but refuses to leave.

We are delighted to present two performances at 1.30pm & 7pm
