An intriguing, fun and interactive street puppet booth experience.... with popcorn! Perfect for festivals and community events.

 

What is it?

 

Clapper Box is a curious, participative puppet event featuring small-scale theatre booths, a lot of random objects and wonderfully written quirky adaptations of classic movies.

 

The public is both puppeteers and audience, sitting on either side of each mini-stage. They wear headphones through which they either receive directions or hear the story. This is a highly imaginative show, ‘playing’ with household objects whilst creating a new perspective on interactive theatre and storytelling.

 

It is a combination of puppetry and object manipulation, that is entertaining for both the performer and the audience. The stories/playlets are all linked to famous films to tie in with ‘Flicks in the Sticks’. Each audience member will be presented with a small cone of popcorn, a fun addition to the experience!
