London International Mime Festival: The Heads: Blind Summit Theatre Company

The new show from the innovators who created memorable puppetry for Anthony Minghella’s Madam Butterfly, Simon McBurney’s A Dog’s Life and The Master and Margarita, their own hit shows Low Life, 1984, and most recently, the Biblically epic tabletop drama, The Table.

In between vast-scale puppetry for the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and a collaboration with David Pountney on a new production of The Magic Flute for the 2013 Bregenz Opera Festival, Blind Summit turn their attention back to the intimacy of theatre, natural home of the well-bred puppet.

The Heads promises a cascade of imagery inspired by Cubism, McCarthyism and Catholicism, with guest appearances by a puppet Madonna, a cardboard J. Edgar Hoover, some giant hands and much more.
