About the Show

A co-production with the Unicorn Theatre, Lighten Up performed from 9th February to 9th March, 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 wtih energy, vibrancy and playfulness.
