Manipulate Festival – Macbeth @ Perth Theatre
Feb 8 @ 7:30 pm
Manipulate Festival - Macbeth @ Perth Theatre

An epic tale of betrayal, regicide, madness,
storms and battles set in Scotland’s rugged and
unforgiving landscape, Shakespeare’s tragedy is
brought vividly to life. Beautifully drawn puppets,
evocative music, atmospheric foley sound and
dynamic cinematic projection combine to create
a captivating silent film before your eyes. The
Paper Cinema creates magical productions which
combine and unify the languages of animation, live
music, film and theatre in a unique way. Intricate
pen and ink illustrations are skilfully manipulated
and layered in real-time in front of a live video
camera and projected onto the big screen.

Manipulate Festival – Invisible Lands @ Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre
Feb 8 @ 9:00 pm
Manipulate Festival - Invisible Lands @ Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre

When war knocked on our door we left our home
behind. We looked ahead and started walking,
tiny TV screen figures wandering a large and
unforgiving world…
In a unique meeting between puppetry, physicality,
choreography and video projections, lines of
people struggle up the hill of a bent back, a
make-shift boat and people in the water drift on a
sea-blue painted belly. We look through binoculars
and witness the chaos-filled journeys into exile
of displaced people all trying to save their skins.
This innovative production has been highly
acclaimed by international audiences.

Manipulate Festival – Sleeping Beauty @ Perth Theatre
Feb 9 @ 7:30 pm
Manipulate Festival - Sleeping Beauty @ Perth Theatre

The kingdom of Liverpool is devastated by
unemployment and famine. It’s safer to be a
gang member than to be alone and needles have
replaced spindles. Not the best place for dreams
about modern- day princesses and very far away
from the nearest, happily-ever-after fairy tale
castle.
A personal interpretation of the darker elements
of the Briar Rose fairy tale, a fairy tale for grownups,
created and performed by Compagnie
Akselere’s artistic director, Colette Garrigan.
Creating a unique and threatening realm of objects
and imaginative lighting, Garrigan integrates her
native Liverpudlian voice with her adopted French
tongue to describe a dangerous world where the
blackest of humour co-exists with poetic stillness
and insights.

Manipulate Festival – Transmographiles @ Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre
Feb 9 @ 9:00 pm
Manipulate Festival - Transmographiles @ Joan Knight Studio, Perth Theatre

Human hands move, morph and combine in
unusual ways, becoming unexpected creatures
and characters. Travel with us through water, earth
and air as we follow the journey from basic life
forms to complex beasts in a surreal evolutionary
narrative of shape shifting and transformation.
Hopeful Monster is a new collaboration between
three puppeteers from three different countries –
Scotland, England and Hungary – brought together
by a shared desire to create surprising new
puppet shows.

Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre
Feb 16 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Penny Junor: All The Queen’s Corgis @ Pitlochry Festival Theatre

The Queen has had corgis by her side ever since she was seven years old and persuaded her father to buy one for the family. The dogs are the Queen’s constant companions and Jenny’s book reveals the scraps and scrapes in which the dogs have been involved.

Daughter of Sir John Junor and school-mate of Princess Anne, journalist, TV presenter and popular writer, Penny Junor is possibly best known for her royal biographies, originating with Diana: Princess of Wales, earning her the label of ‘royal expert’. This is a fascinating and affectionate look at the Queen and her most faithful companions on what really makes our much-loved and longest reigning monarch truly light up.
