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.
The puppet masters behind the breathtaking 90 foot Voldemort puppet which dominated the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony, Blind Summit is dedicated to creating opportunities for artists to meet in groups to develop their skills and knowledge of the art form.
'Beckett meets Tommy Cooper... brilliantly funny' (Time Out)
'Astonishingly accomplished' (The Daily Telegraph).
