NEWS: Award-winning puppeteers, Smoking Apples, join the Jellyfish team!

Another day, another milestone for Jellyfish!

 

Things have been happening behind the scenes for a while now, but I can finally announce that award-winning puppetry company Smoking Apples, will be collaborating with us on Jellyfish as puppet designers and makers.

 Matt Lloyd, co-Artistic Director of Smoking Apples said, “What Intrepid Ensemble are doing with Jellyfish is exciting. They are taking a challenging and complex subject, and making it accessible for young children through puppetry and theatre.”

 

We’re all huge fans of their work and I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be able to welcome them to the project. They’ve worked on everything from fringe theatre to television ads and I can’t wait to see how they’re going to bring their award-winning vision and flair to Jellyfish.

With originally composed live music, puppetry and visual storytelling, Jellyfish explores motherhood and mental health. The piece is aimed at children, young people and adults with big imaginations. Based on an original story created by the company.

 

Stay tuned to the blog because we’re going to be bringing you sneak-peaks into their creative processes and development over the coming weeks. I’m sure it’s going to be breath-taking.
