Description

Launched in 1999, The Puppet and Its Double Theater is dedicated to an experimental approach and a belief that all things can be formed into puppets, exploring the possibilities of puppetry in contemporary performing art.

The Selfish Giant is a well-known fairy tale writted by Oscar Wilde for his little son. Despite its insinuated undertone, the story contains deep love for the world and the wisdom of life. The fragility of children and flowers is used to constrast the powerfulness of the Giant, but the Giant, with such strength, needs the childern to defrost the frozen garden. 

Die on that Day explores the life confession of an outcast through eight vignettes. In a cold dissecting room, puppeteers, like forensic examiners, trace each body's final destination in life, full of craziness and bizarreness. 

**Available Touring Dates: January 2024 through December 2025**
