Feral

19:30, 23 Mar

Feral is an innovative piece of visual theatre that combines puppetry, film and live sound to create and destroy a world in front of its audience’s eyes. Joe looks back at the town of his childhood. Bright, vibrant and idyllic, the world resembles a haven of comfort. But as Joe journeys on, walls and lives are peeled back and the story of a community’s fall unfolds around him.

A cross artform piece, Feral seamlessly blends film and live performance. Puppeteers manipulate and bring to life a tiny world, whilst simultaneously creating a live animation, as they follow it’s every breath via digital camera.

Feral is a co-production between Edinburgh’s Tortoise in a Nutshell and Cumbernauld Theatre. It was originally developed and presented by the National Theatre of Scotland as part of their Reveal Season 2012. At the 2013 Edinburgh Fringe Festival it was both shortlisted for a Total Theatre Award and was a winner of a Scotsman Fringe First Award.
