Take a theatre director with a fascination for 1950s sci-fi and a filmmaker with a passion for puppetry. Throw in a glue gun, some cardboard, string and markers, add a shared love of the absurd and you have the unique puppet experience that is Sci-Fi Double Feature.
With its ingeniously designed puppets and sets and an irreverent approach to storytelling, this small-scale show brings new meaning to the term "double feature”. Thanks to the unique technique of capturing the performance live on video and simultaneously projecting it onto a large screen, the audience can choose to look at the “making of” in the puppet world, or to watch the movie unfold within the frame of the silver screen. This is puppetry that boldly goes where no puppetry has gone before!
