Disembodied heads and shadowy figures emerge from the darkness, conjuring images of dream-like hallucination. Their expressions remain still but their emotions transform as they pass before our eyes, leaving the question, is it all real or just in our heads?

Blurring imagination and distorting reality like never before, The Heads is a modernist marionette stream of consciousness inspired by cubism and surrealism.

Accompanied by an original musical score, Blind Summit journey into the depths of the mind to follow the life of a head. The Heads is a cascade of visually hypnotic puppetry.

Take a trip inside your head. Take a trip with The Heads.

The Heads premiered at Soho Theatre as part of the London International Mime Festival 2013 16th - 26th January.
