A Terrapin Puppet Theatre Production

“A zephyr of pure originality and lyricism flows through this work….which simply carries one into a vivid and fantastical world.”

Boats is classic storytelling where the magic unfolds in front of the audience. The sound effects are created live, a boat is cut from bread, a bird tied from rope, a circus hides in a jacket, and finally a storm is made with a teacup.
