Flying machines and rickety old bike wheels squeak. Cogs and ratchets turn and clank. A mysterious character makes their way through the world of shadows and into light.
This is a shadow play performance by creative practitioner Mike Hartley. Incorporating the magic of sound and movement, and using kinetic sculptures and automata made from brick a brack and recycled junk, he creates new stories and breathes new life into old objects.
