Anya (2016/17)

Anya was a highly successful project initially commission by the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2012 for performance at Michael Boyd’s Swansong in 2013.  Jonathan is now developing this work to make it a stand-alone theatrical piece with puppets, developing the story and music of the original Anya production.

Currently developing ideas with writer Paul Wignall and puppet-director, Rachel Warr for the live puppet-theatre piece.  A day’s development was undertaken in late 2015 at Little Angel Theatre London (for which we were most grateful to them and all the puppeteers involved) and research and development monies are now being sought to make some Anya puppets and re-write and re-imagine the music for smaller live forces.
