Makers, creators, and story lovers; dive into a theatrical adventure that feels like the magic box of a bygone trickster!

Journey to an eccentric place where gadgets are poetic, puppets naughty, machines untamed and circus tricks pop up when you’re least expecting it! This is a world where music appears from lemons, carrots and bunny’s bums, monsters go crazy and birthday parties are ferociously celebrated.

Loose Ends is the story of a man who thinks he can organise all his life in boxes, and has a knack for getting into mischief. Can this tinkerer learn enough about real friendship to keep him out of trouble? Loose Ends is a family show, combining custom-built contraptions, puppetry, circus, shadow projection, music and transformed objects. It is a story about friendship, loyalty and inventiveness, in a whimsical world of half-mechanised thingamabobs and headstrong puppets.

This breathtaking show is highly visual, emotional and unpredictable. It makes inventions and machines fun and adds a few quirky edges to puppetry. Ever wondered what Elmo would look like without his fur? The show has a sneakily educational post-show component, where a few of its tinkering and technological elements are explained and experimented with.
