Own Two Feet

Midnight Theatre Company
Japan Premiere
Age: 2-8| Duration: 40 mins| Non-verbal

Ninna is 5 years old and lives in the countryside for the first time.

Inspired by both Bunraku and object manipulation puppetry styles, Own Two Feet is a visually stunning show with a folk and country inspired musical score. It's main character, Ninna (played by a bunraku style puppet), is an adventurous and mischievous 5 year old girl who is experiencing life in the countryside for the first time. Puppet animals, including Snati the dog, a cow and a pig, are created from objects already on stage and they help Ninna find courage in new experiences.

A message from the artists:

"Hello dear friends in Japan. We are Midnight Theatre Company, travelling from one volcanic island to another, with a very Icelandic story told with puppet techniques originating in Japan. This will be our first time in Japan as a theatre company, but two members of the cast have been to Japan before and they tell us wonderful things about your country. We can't wait to meet you!"
