Returning to MANIPULATE two years after their visit with the extraordinary Open The Owl, festival favourites Ljubljana Puppet Theatre return with Moč, an intimate puppet-object miniature exploring power, weakness and control.

Drawing the audience into a strange, distorted world, this intimate performance gives a double glimpse into the theme of power, the objects that enlarge or reduce, draw nearer or distance, hide or reveal the seen.

Who is manipulating who in this work, which plays with varying notions of power and weakness, as well as of public and private?

The company employ their trademark expert touch with marionettes to convey subtle and not-so-subtle shifts in and play with imagery of hegemony, using mirrors, strings, lights and glass.

Please note that strobe lighting is used in this show.
