Created semi-autobiographically, Puppet Designer Nikki Charlesworth challenges the fundamental laws of traditional puppetry by making puppets that reflect her own physicality and moves as she moves.
The story follows Little Red, Noodles and Bo, three raggedy puppets, who just like their puppeteers, are trying to get through the day. Ahead of them lies a mountain of challenges. The puppets have to persevere and find creative ways to overcome their impassable surroundings, using humour to dissipate the mounting frustration.
“What Happened to You?” showcases the endless opportunities out there once barriers are removed.
This show features creative Audio Description and British Sign Language ensuring the show is accessible and inclusive.
“Both thematically and aesthetically, Nikki is exploring new territory with the Children’s Theatre she is creating. This is exciting, radical and innovative work.”Peter Glanville - Polka Theatre (Artistic Director)
