This is award winning, epic puppetry inspired by Beckett, the Bible and Ikea. Moses is a cantankerous 3 man operated puppet with a cardboard head… who lives on a table. Blind Summit has asked him to use his table to tell the epic story of Moses leading the Israelites to freedom. But he’s not too sure about the whole idea. Plus, he gets easily distracted. Unique and very funny, this is improvised puppetry like you have never seen before. Our table-top philosopher explains the nature of puppetry, has disagreements with his puppeteers, flirts with female audience members, examines the bible and has an unfortunate mishap with an invisible running machine.

The Blind Summit Theatre is reinventing puppetry for modern adult audiences. The success of the work is down to its accessibility, combined with beautifully crafted puppets and finely detailed puppetry. The company was founded in 1997 and since then has worked on productions around the world, of which we highlight, “The table”, the London Olympic Opening Ceremony, “A Dog’s Heart”, “Master and Margarita” and “Madam Butterfly”.
