The Red Balloon
The show tells the story of a small boy's friendship with a balloon and explores the poignancy of a child's imagination.
Performed using long string wood-carved marionettes, and accompanied by specially commissioned music, the show has captured the imaginations of both adults and children as they are transported into the world of the puppets.
Expertly manipulated, the puppets become characters and are able to present the most intense emotions, using only mime, to audiences who become spellbound by their magic. The show is inspired by the short film (of the same name) by Albert Lamorisse.
