Lempen Puppet Theatre Company Present
(The Carnival of the Animals)
Trunk, Tail, Ears or Wings?
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.
Inspiration and delight for everyone from 4 to 104.
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.
