|HIS DARK MATERIALS|
5 hours of fantastic storytelling, acting, music and puppetry in this two part epic theatre version of Phillip Pullman's hugely popular trilogy. Blind Summit provided the Polar Bears, Daemons, Gallivespians...
"this bold piece of theatre held
a packed audience enthralled"
"...the puppet daemons created by
Blind Summit (and) the skeletal bears with their bony spines are
"The tiny spies, the Gallivespians...
are a total success"
"daemon puppets roam the stage...
with such realism that it is easy to forget the puppeteer operating
them from behind."
"Lyra, of course, has a daemon
– Pantalaimon. This beautifully designed puppet is exquisitely
animated by Gerard Carey. The puppetry as a whole is one of the
top thrills of this production. From Geoffrey Lumb bringing alive
the powerful bear, Iorek Byrnison, through Ben Thompson’s
breathing life into the never-still-for-a-moment, Golden Monkey,
to the tiny and hilarious Galivespians of Ian Conningham, Nicholas
Asbury and Josie Daxter and all the others, this is total joy
