2011 saw us head back to the Motherland (Prague), performing Seemingly Invisible at the Prague Fringe Festival, IYAF and the Blue Elephant Theatre. We did our final performance of this show, with Aimee Holmes, in Wiltshire before deciding to part ways creatively. Don’t worry though, she’s still one of our bestest pals and will always be an apple at heart.
We began working with the International Youth Arts Festival (IYAF) as puppetry directors for From Amazon, which was performed for HRH The Earl of Wessex, Prince Edward. We were then invited to join the Creative Youth Creative Talent program, which gives young companies an opportunity to perform and develop their work. Late in 2011, Community Brain invited us and fellow Creative Talent company Dumbshow to create a Heritage Lottery funded, site-specific show, Seething Wells and The Death of King Cholera.
We also started to work behind the camera, puppeteering in TV Adverts for Weetabix and Webuyanycar.com. Most excitingly in November 2011 we worked on and puppeteered on Eider Falls at Lake Tahoe – a beautiful music video for Kate Bush using shadow puppetry.
