Nikki Charlesworth Presents

“What Happened to YOU?”

Sat 18 Mar, 2023 Archive
Derby CAN Hubs brings a brand-new, heart-warming piece of puppet theatre for children and their families.

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.
