About: Citizen Puppet

Puppet pioneers Blind Summit Theatre collaborate with final year students from The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama to present a verbatim puppet theatre experiment that delves into the lives of people on the political “fringe”, in the build up to the general election.

Using verbatim dialogue that expresses views that might otherwise be censored, the puppets reveal unspeakable truths (and lies). Immigration, housing, immigration, tax fraud, immigration... The puppets don’t have opinions, they just repeat what they hear.

The first chance to see a new emerging work by Blind Summit – the creators of hit show The Table and the puppetry for the London Olympic Opening Ceremony 2012.

Produced in collaboration with The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, this production is supported by the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.

Blind Summit's mission is to present new puppets in new places, and in new ways to new audiences.

At a time when theatre is so under threat from the proliferation of new media, puppetry is one of the areas which offers a unique, live experience for audiences. Blind Summit's work challenges people's attitudes to puppetry. Their puppets are modern and shows tackle contemporary issues that concern them.


"If puppetry is ever to be the next rock 'n' roll these animators may well be its frontmen."
