A THING MISLAID - touring Autumn 2018

Commissioned by China Plate, Warwick Arts Centre, mac Birmingham and In Good Company.

A THING MISLAID ......a new Foo show full of footsteps, feathers and hope.

'Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing. A thing mislaid. A thing without a flock, looking for a place to belong.'

Maison Foo blend their trademark style of visual storytelling, clowning and humour, with new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera.

Travelling through cinematic worlds and surreal realities, A THING MISLAID explores themes of migration and journey, asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong’?

A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.

We have made this show for a wide range of Foo followers...for grown ups, parents, grandparents and thier children. We have made this show to be enjoyed and then we hope discussed after in the cafe, bar, car or around the dinner table. We recommend young people come with an adult.

We would say it's unsuitable for young people under 10 years.

 

‘Funny, charming, intriguing and also thoroughly provoking…..a real delight’
— Audience feedback at First Bite Showcase (Derby Theatre)
The Interlude is an intelligently crafted piece of theatre, which deals with a difficult but urgent subject matter in a visually rich and inventive way. The Performers are remarkable and the show is perfectly pitched for families and adults who want to engage both creatively and politically
— Ruby Glaskin, Producer In Good Company
Saved the best till last – brilliant performances, funny yet very current, topical/poignant issues covered – totally intriguing I want more please!! Love the visual puppetry too (excited).
