The Old Man’s Books explores how books can bring your imagination to life. Kunta is an old man who works as secondhand children’s-book seller. He lives in a different world, one that Pepa and Pong could never have imagined….
The Old Man’s Books also includes an all-ages puppetry workshop, which is conducted by artists from Papermoon Puppet Theatre in the days before the performance. The puppets that the participants make become part of the show.
Note: For more information about our workshops, please see the “Workshops” page.
“For puppets that speak no words, and have just one unmoving facial expression, it’s incredible how emotionally expressive they can be.”
