Blind Summit Theatre
April 19th, 2013 – 5.00 p.m. | The Polski Theatre
Puppet masters Blind Summit have completely reworked the first section of last year's extreme puppetry hit show The Table to make “Moses” into the whole show.
Last year people kept saying they wanted to see more of Moses – the table-top puppet having an existential crisis – and over the year, through performing and improvising in front of audiences from around the world, he demanded more and more space and time. Accidents during performances – bits falling off the puppet etc .– have been favourite moments for audiences and so the show has grown and grown. This year Blind Summit are working with Andrew Dawson (veteran fringe Director, Pandora 88, Absence & Presence) and giving Moses his own show which will be presented for the first time in its new form for 4 days at The Pleasance Beyond.
People say Edinburgh is no longer the place to experiment but Blind Summit found last year's audiences very keen to support something new. We are sure this year's audiences will be just as enthusiastic and hopefully Moses won't let them down!
