Baby Glovebird takes flight at Theatre Fest West

We asked Hand to Mouth to tell us a little about Flights of Fancy which will be performed at this year’s Theatre Fest West festival. Flights of Fancy-HD.Still001

Can you tell us a little about Flights of Fancy?

Flights of Fancy is a musical puppet theatre show which engages adults and children as it creates an imaginary avian world from minimal resources and builds towards a satisfying soaring climax.

What inspired you to create this production?

We were looking to create a sequel to our Piggery Jokery show which has toured the world from a couple of suitcases. We liked the idea of something to do with flight (maybe because our children have recently flown the nest!) and also to incorporate ancient commedia routines into a new show.

What do you enjoy most about making shows for outdoor audiences?

We began as buskers and we like the magic of creating something from nothing – creating theatre in the middle of a field by attracting and enthralling an audience.

Flights of Fancy will be out and about near Salisbury Playhouse on Saturday 26 March 2016. There will be FREE performances at 11am, 2pm and 3pm – just come along on the day.
