A story about identity, and how it might feel to be unknown or anonymous living in society.

Appearing with no facial features a puppet begins to create his character. One by one his senses come to life as he discovers each eye, his ears, a nose and a mouth. But how will he react in a boisterous man-made world of noise and frantic energy?

This simple wordless piece by Sokobauno Puppet Theatre explores the language of the puppet, object and sound through delicate, highly-skilled manipulation. The show was first performed in 2016 for Syrian refugee children during the 10th International Puppetry Festival in the Turkish city of Izmir.

The event takes place in the Little Fawn Caravan Theatre – a travelling children’s theatre with a wonderful, colourful atmosphere and a unique performance space.

Suitable for ages 4+ and their adults.
