Suspense Festival: Bastard!
A festival celebrating the multi-faceted world of puppetry
Suspense Festival is bringing an amazing array of puppetry to the stage, proving that puppets are not just for kids. Bastard is the story of an artist who has lost his way, and the wonderful (and not so wonderful) characters who come to help. Bringing the story to life is solo performer Duda Paiva, part of an international company who create a relationship between dance and objects. Surreal puppets help to tell the tale of man’s cruelty, with provocative symbolism painting a picture of a bizarre and grim future. Best available seating. Suspense Festival is aimed at adult audiences, recommended viewing age is over 12s only. Running time approximately 1 hour.
