From hand shadowgraphy to avant-garde puppetry and adult fairy tales, the Festival offers Norwich audiences a rare opportunity to experience some grown-up puppetry and related artforms in the magical setting of Norwich Puppet Theatre.
With a total of 75 events at this year’s MANIPULATE Festival it can be difficult to decide on what to attend and how best to plan your day but don’t worry, we’ve done all the hard work for you.
If you are passionate and enthusiastic about visual theatre, puppetry and animated film, enjoy working with a wide range of people and would like to learn more about elements of running an arts festival, we’d love to hear from you.
