About Flotsam & Jetsam (2pm)

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, adventure story about two very different creatures displaced from their respective worlds by climate change. A story of our time, visual, accessible and with delightful puppetry and original music. Suitable for everyone from 4 – 104.

“Liz and Daniel Lempen with their gentle play, terrific manipulation, beautiful, fun-grotesque puppets and wonderful music by Chris Davies, have created a most contemporary story that moves hearts.”

Frank Demenga, Bern Puppet Theatre, Switzerland
