About Puppet Animation Festival: Tricky – A Fairy Story

NUDGE Puppets
Immersive Performance Puppetry Workshop
Age 4-9

Have you ever met a fairy? They’re shape-shifters and mischief makers! Puck is the youngest and cheekiest of the fairies. How will he react when the Fairy Queen takes in a human baby?

Tricky is a one woman show, where hands move in unusual ways to create shape-shifting fairies. Using handmade puppets, it tells the story of Puck, a baby fairy vying for attention and learning to share. A story about tricks, patience and love. Then, learn about puppetry in an interactive demonstration. Participants will have a go, interacting with the puppets and help to make them move!

We are very pleased to welcome Glasgow-based NUDGE Puppets to Puppet Animation Festival for the first time.
