Compagnie du Hanneton / James Thiérrée (France)

Leave reality behind and immerse yourself in a place of dreams, imagination and giant puppets as one of physical theatre’s most celebrated sons unleashes his stunning array of skills.

Few do theatrical spectacle better than multi award-winning artist James Thiérrée. Not surprising really, given that he grew up in a renowned theatrical family and has been perfecting the art of performance since he was knee-high to a ringmaster.

After wildly popular Festival performances in 2004 (The Junebug Symphony) and 2006 (Bright Abyss), Thiérrée returns in his new full-length piece as Raoul, a lone figure adrift in an incredible, ever changing world of billowing sails, steel pipes and driftwood. Alone, that is, until the arrival of a destructive doppelgänger that attacks Raoul’s home and has him questioning his very identity and existence.

Unexpected at every turn, Thiérrée draws from a seemingly endless repertoire of theatrical talents as he pushes his mind and body to incredible new places. In his hands every part of the intricate set comes alive as Raoul’s world begins to spectacularly crash down around him.

Funny, moving and achingly beautiful, Raoul is a mesmerising journey into the mind of one of Europe’s most creative and versatile artists.

Age recommendation: 12+
