12 Strings and the Scale of Things


Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 August 2017 at the New Hayman Theatre

Take twelve brave souls, six body parts, four metres of Giant, three kilometres of rope, two strong hearts, and one thread in common. Tie it all together. Shake vigorously, caress lovingly and infuse with humour until cohesive. The result will be sublime.

Twelve Strings and The Scale of Things is a devised work exploring the most primary of emotions: fear, courage, and love. Blending puppetry, visual theatre and live music, twelve people tell a story of rising in the face of fear. Directed by Rebecca Bradley, incorporating the design and making genius of Leon Hendroff, and made with the support of Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, Twelve Strings will draw you in and elevate your spirit.
