The Parachute is a funny and mesmerising story about youth, love and confronting old age. Armed with Sebastian Castagna’s glorious music and an armful of white tipped wands, puppeteer Stephen Mottram magics up his 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, populated by captivating, non-existent actors.

Watch the Ball sends us scurrying down neutral pathways old and new in a short, magical piece about the suspension of disbelief. Is shows that ultimately, the job of the audience rather that the puppet.
