Monkey – Puppetcraft – Sterts Theatre
August 26, 2015 @ 2:00 pm| £5
Monkey is the main comic character in China’s great classic story Journey to the West, and is still one of the world’s most popular folk heroes, even after hundreds of years. Hatched from a stone egg the mischievous Monkey can fly on a cloud, turn invisible and transform into anything…!
We have created our own telling of the story of the much loved trickster and super-hero Monkey.
26 years ago PuppetCraft’s director, John Roberts, trained in China for 6 months learning about a puppet tradition that goes back 3000 years. He has spent the last two decades perfecting his own puppet making and performing methods based on this ancient form.
