la boutique

2 actors play 8 masks and 1 dog puppet in a tale of fashion and fantasy. La Boutique explores themes of self-esteem and the obsession with style over substance as nine masked characters live out their fantasies in search of true love.

love & gluttony

A starving clown finds a fridge full of food and takes off on a slapstick journey stocked with perverse puppetry, eccentric dance, epicurean edification, masks and magic. Part Beckett, part Coyote Trickster tale, with a heaping helping of Masterchef.

peel (when the id comes marching in)

With influences ranging from the Tibetan Book of the Dead to Mad Magazine, the Medieval Feast of Fools to Monty Python, Freud & Jung to Moe & Curly, PEEL utilizes ingenious mask work and physical comedy to tell the story of one man's fall and the power of humour to heal.
