Our puppet triptych Malevolent Creatures is rooted in the folklore of the British Isles. This devised work explores ways that ancient stories and supernatural creatures continue to haunt us as we struggle with fears and changes in our world today.

Artistic Team: Cecilia Cackley, Genna Beth Davidson, Patricia Germann, Amy Kellett,  Nina Budabin McQuown, Nicole Martin, Annalisa Dias, Hali Bickford, Jared Graham, Paige O’Malley, Christina Day, Seth Langer, Katie McCreary, Anja Kuipers.
