Norwich Puppet Theatre, Pinocchio

Review in Issue 17-1 | Spring 2005

This was a very accomplished piece of work, Mark Whitaker’s consummate skills leading us through the story with puppetry, acting and mask play. The story was ingeniously told with table and shadow puppetry and rear projections, all put together around a set that served all the needs of the story and the performers telling of it. With only two performers holding all the threads together, it sometimes got a bit hectic. Though the beginning had a wonderful stillness and beauty, the desire to push the story along left me wishing for more moments of wonder and peacefulness.
