I Love You When You’re Breathing
Audiences will have the unique opportunity of seeing a puppet deliver a meta-theatrical address to critics and the general public. Using comedy and generous amounts of self-reflexive humour, this presentation gives insight into the behind-the-scenes life of a puppet as an object in the world of international theatre.
Often humorous and sometimes irreverent, the performance-lecture considers what it is like to be inanimate, while also highlighting the role of the audience in the making of meaning.
Directed by: Jason Potgieter; puppet crafted by: Adrian Kohler; original text: Basil Jones; costume: Phyllis Midlane; performed by: Gabriel Marchand, Roshina Ratnam and Beren Belknap.
