Flotsam & Jetsam
Flotsam floats, Jetsam sinks
Both their worlds are on the brinks,
The jagged arcs of waves and sharks
Chase them both in minds and hearts.
They must break through their tears and fears
And worries of a thousand years,
To find what’s true and out of the blue
Discover the other and a friend that’s new.
Flotsam is soft, flexible, laid back. She slides and glides through life on the ice. Jetsam is the opposite, his insectile body in stiff and nervy, alert and watchful, suspicious of all in his forest home.
And then comes the weather… and they are both cast adrift in a world that is strange to them and full of a range of dangers. Finally washed up on the same island beach they must discover the other and work out how they can work together.
A hopeful, musical, visual adventure story with about two very different creatures who must learn to work together.
40minutes, no interval | Suitable for everyone from 4 – 104yrs!
Lempen Puppet Theatre Company
Lempen Puppet Theatre Company tour their own unique brand of original stories told with puppets. Imaginative, spellbinding, surprising and sometimes bonkers, Lempen focus on puppetry, storytelling, light, music and a journey that takes the audience there and back again.
We are inspired to make theatre by Myth and Folklore, crazy characters, what makes us laugh and what we care about. We aim to produce quality productions for family audiences that connect the real world to the world of imagination. Based in North Yorkshire, but touring nationally and internationally Liz and Daniel Lempen are also the Artistic Directors for Skipton International Puppet Festival.
