Japanese bunraku puppetry masters Blind Summit do thought-provoking standup comedy theatre with pieces of cardboard and a huge amount of skill and deftness of touch.
Working with them was a real pleasure.
Moses enjoying some downtime in Blind Summit's London workshop
Moses is a cantankerous 3 man operated puppet with a cardboard head… who lives on a table. Tonight he wants to tell you an epic story about God and Moses, life and death, and puppetry… on a table. But he gets easily distracted.
Like a cross of Tommy Cooper and Eddie Izzard, this table-top philosopher and comedian is the funniest “piece of cardboard” you will ever meet.
Blind Summit prove once again that when you're working in miniature you don't have to think small
