Following a sell out run in January this year, Blind Summit returns with a newly reworked, extended performance of The Table. A cantankerous, two foot high puppet has an existential crisis on top of a table as he tries to perform a real time re-enactment of the last twelve hours of Moses’s life. How did he get there? Why is he there? Why can’t he get off? Does he want to get off?
From the innovators who created memorable puppetry for Anthony Minghella’s award winning Madam Butterfly, Simon McBurney’s A Dog’s Heart and their own sell-out hits, 1984 and Low Life.
‘One of the funniest hours around… “Extreme puppetry”, the acclaimed company call it. Extremely entertaining I say. Recommended, no strings attached.’
Blind Summit Theatre in association with 2012 London International Mime Festival and Soho Theatre. Supported by Jackson’s Lane. Commissioned by YaD Arts and JCC.
Audio described performance: Wed 23 May, 7.30pm

‘Astonishingly accomplished puppetry… heartbreaking.’
‘‘Remarkable… with considerable wit, Blind Summit once again prove that when you are working in miniature, you don’t have to think small.’
‘As infectiously energetic as it is ingenious.’
