Lighten Up

A Theatre-Rites co-production with Unicorn Theatre London, 2008.

Inspired by light, this production saw five puppeteer-performers play in the darkness before being thrust into the spotlight.  Using puppetry, mime and dance Lighten Up was an intriguing production that radiated with energy, vibrancy and playfulness. 

Lighten Up was performed at Unicorn Theatre, London in 2008.
