Theatre and puppetry combine to create startling images. Read More >

In Kefar Nahum, scorceress-puppeteer Nicole Mossoux creates theatre of startling images, at once droll and frightening. 

Random objects are endowed with human desires and animal impulses, reincarnating them as actors, representing the supreme shambles that is humanity.

Everything is possible in this world where suggestion opens the door to the darkest, deepest dreams. Power games, monstrous couplings and unexplained violence take place in a procession of transformations. It’s the story of Creation, a great project gone badly wrong, where people can’t relate and so devour each other. Even the puppeteer herself cannot escape.

Kefar Nahum is presented as part of the 2010 London International Mime Festival and is suitable for theatregoers aged 12 and older.
