WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The play, especially commissioned and written by Howard Barker for the marionette stage, follows the fate of Botius, a philosopher of circumstances, who brings down upon himself, by an appalling intellectual collusion, everything he dreads. The combination of the puppet work and the writer's dramatic language creates a powerful and haunting piece of theatre. Suitable for older children and adults.
