'Blind Summit prove once again that when you’re working in miniature you don’t have to think small'
The Guardian (The Table)
The new show from the innovators who created memorable puppetry for Anthony Minghella’s Madam Butterfly, Simon McBurney’s A Dog’s Heart and The Master and Margarita, their own hit shows Low Life, 1984, and most recently, the Biblically epic tabletop drama, The Table.
In between vast-scale puppetry for the 2012 Olympic opening ceremony and a collaboration with David Pountney on a new production of The Magic Flute for the 2013 Bregenz Opera Festival, Blind Summit turn their attention back to the intimacy of theatre, natural home of the well-bred puppet.
The Heads promises a cascade of imagery inspired by Cubism, McCarthyism and Catholicism, with guest appearances by a puppet Madonna, a cardboard J. Edgar Hoover, some giant hands and much more.
