'Expertly reveals how minimalism can create big pictures in our imaginations’

The Stage, United Kingdom

 

Performed in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 and Beverley Puppet Festival 2016

 

One puppet, one fish, an incurable disease – the last trip of a lifetime.

 

Ted suffers from Motor Neurone Disease (MND) which causes his mobility to degenerate and he is talking to us through an electronic device. He is now bound to a wheelchair and cannot move by himself but he still remembers the good times.  There is a flashback to the time when Ted experiences the first signs of MND.  When he is diagnosed with the disease, he rushes to experience the world outside his comfort zone and take a final trip to Europe with his pet fish.  The relationship between Ted and his pet fish is especially touching and Ted remains positive even his body is failing him.  The piece features heartwarming and inventive puppetry to tell one man’s final adventure to create enough memories to last a lifetime.

CELL is a collaboration between two upcoming companies from the United Kingdom and has been funded by Arts Council England.  This programme was performed at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015 and Beverley Puppet Festival 2016, and was nominated for the Peter Brook Festival Award.

'From Puppets to Humans' Series: CELL, co-produced by Smoking Apples and Dogfish (United Kingdom)

Smoking Apples is founded in 2009 and its team includes Molly Freeman, Matt Lloyd and Hattie Thomas.  They discovered a mutual love of puppetry when studying together in Prague.  The theatre has developed a unique style and approach to create an alternative kind of puppet theatre which incorporates disciplines of storytelling, physical and visual theatre.  It aims to ignite an adult imagination by sharing beautiful stories about the strengths and intricacies of human nature.

 

Dogfish is a new company founded in 2015, by William Aubrey Jones who specialises in making aesthetically curious design led theatre, often utilizing puppets, kinetic sculpture and using little or no text.

 

Devisors and performers: Molly Freeman, Matthew Lloyd, William Aubrey Jones
