Puppet Power Performance - Something in the Water

Puppet Power: Festival of Ideas TicketsPuppet Power Performance  –
Something in the Water

This puppet power performance – Something in the Water is an ONLINE.  There will be a live talk-back / post-show discussion with S.E. Grummett on creating queer theatre and using puppetry, mask and object theatre to explore trans-bodies and performance of “the other”.

When Grumms transforms into a horrible, squid monster (think Creature from the Black Lagoon meets The Muppets), they must hide their identity and try to pass in society as a “normal, human woman”.

Inspired by performer/creator, S.E. Grummett’s experience coming out as transgender, SOMETHING IN THE WATER is a celebration of the “not normal”. By turning into a giant squid monster, performer S.E. Grummett playfully demonstrates what it’s like trying to pass as either male or female, or find the freedom to exist as something else entirely.

Grummett combines live feed video with elements of puppetry and object theatre to play with scale, perspective and visual storytelling in this show.

Audiences will be spellbound by; stunning digital puppetry, slapstick and satire; all stirred up together with Grummett’s glowing and playful performance. With the perfect balance of absurdist physical comedy and vulnerable self-exploration, the show weaves a touching story of acceptance that anyone can relate to.
