Stumble On To

Without words

A show without words. How, incidentally, was fire discovered? Of what use is broken glass to damaged eyes? and which dreams became a hot-air balloon? In the "Laboratory of Human Curiosity" magical and imaginative plots of discoveries are revealed, of inventions which incidentally happened, and of the people who dreamt them up. A fascinating show, full of imagination, which incorporates puppets, shadows, objects and human-beings

What the critics say

A complex and sophisticated puppet show On an intriguing stage full of surprises three talented puppeteers demonstrate three stories of accidental scientific inventions A flowing imagination of theatrical language and accurate puppetry This is an original invested imaginative and magical show The message of the show is just as important it encourages curiosity and creativity which stand behind the artistic and the scientific experience as one
