PAST WORK

Stowaway

Co writer and Director with Analogue

A man wakes, face down, sprawled across his single bed, the sunlight gently creeping through the window. Today is the day he will change his life.

 

A Boeing 777 begins its descent towards Heathrow. The wheels unfold out of the belly of the plane.  The frozen body of a stowaway is tipped out and cuts through the clear morning sky

 

In the car park of B&Q, Andy looks up. Something is falling out of the sky. A man crash-lands on the ground in front of him.

 

Stowaway is the story of a man from India who moves to the UAE for the promise of work and prosperity.  When he finds himself trapped within a Dubai labour camp, with his passport and wages withheld from him, he hides in the wheel well of a plane bound for the UK, in a bid for a better life.  It’s a story about invisible and physical borders and the people who transcend them.

 

But what are the rules of telling someone else’s story when they come from a world so very different from our own; where telling their story could act to perpetuate an unresolved history of imperialism?

 

With the skeleton of a plane cutting across the stage, Stowaway flies back and forth through time and place, looking at storytelling as a political act.

 

"A serious and stylistically playful navigation between two worlds... A show that lays bare the heartbreak of such unnecessary fatalities"

The Secret Life of Suitcases

Larry works in an office and he likes it very much. He likes sorting and tidying and generally putting things in order. Everything in its place, a place for everything.

 

But one day, a suitcase suddenly appears at his door. A suitcase with a tiny label. A tiny label with Larry’s name on it. And this suitcase has a mission...

 

Join Larry in ‘The Secret Life of Suitcases’ as his world gets turned upside down by a fantastical flying suitcase taking him further than he ever thought possible. Follow Larry’s journey as he discovers the thrill of adventure and the joy of coming home again.

 

This funny and enchanting puppet show was originally co-produced by the Unicorn Theatre, London.
