‘Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing mislaid.’
Maison Foo bring invention, charm and wit to audiences with their signature blend of visual storytelling, clowning and humour, along with new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera.
Join them on their adventure, travelling through strange cinematic worlds and surreal realities. ‘A thing Mislaid’ explores themes of migration and journey asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong?’
A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.
During performances we will be piloting Talking Birds’ Difference Engine to deliver captions in English and Arabic www.maisonfoo.co.uk/refugeefriends
Please note there will be a post show discussion at each performance.
