A burlesque-inspired ‘hand-tease’, celebrating the fluidity, versatility and down-right sexy movement that a hand can perform. A short form piece of hand puppetry which cheekily celebrates one person’s awakening and coming of age. Big bravado with… a small appendage! Finger Fatale has a strong visual narrative with no spoken dialogue and an immersive soundscape which informs the story.

Burlesque like you’ve never seen it before… If Addam’s Family Thing and Mae West had a brainchild, it would be this. Silliness, sexiness, invention abound. Surely a perfect fit as a knockout feature within a variety or cabaret production.  Edinburgh Guide
