Puppet Animation Festival – Puppet Show
Alberts Amazing Acrobatic Flea Circus – Sokobauno Puppet Theatre (Ages 4+)
Monday 7th April 2014
2pm (40 minutes)
£6 Adult / £4 Child
Fifi and Finbar are two of the star attractions in this mesmerising hoo-ha. Witness their bizarre feats of strength, death defying stunts, brilliant balancing and jovial jumping, effortlessly performed before your very eyes. But a dark cloud descends across the circus tent as the troupe prepare for their biggest ever night – Fifi and Finbar have disappeared! And just moments before they are due to perform for the queen of the flea circus, Petit Polly. With the help of the audience and a very special magnifying glass the show must go on!
Performed using a purpose built chapiteau, with inspiring original music, amazing puppetry and ingenious slight of hand, prepare to be enthralled and dumbfounded!
Sokobauno was formed in 2004 by puppeteer and performer Shane Connolly. Shane has worked with many theatre companies in the UK and abroad, including Scottish Opera, Visible Fictions.
