The Parachute is a funny and mesmerising tale about youth, love and confronting old age. With little more than an armful of white tipped wands, master-puppeteer Stephen Mottram conjures characters from nowhere. He plays with the way our brains make sense of things we see and stealthily reels us into a world of movement and illusion, populated by ephemeral, joyous figures.
This new piece by Stephen Mottram fuses artistry with neuroscience and demonstrate the magic of puppetry as a story-telling medium. The soundscore is by Stephen’s regular collaborator, Sebastian Castagna.
Stephen Mottram has performed in more than 40 countries. A movement artist using puppets ranging from fully strung marionettes and automata, to a handful of ping pong balls, his shows are wordless, with specially composed electroacoustic music. His previous shows include The Seed Carriers, The Seas of Organillo and In Suspension.
