9-14th JUNE - PARIS - INTERNATIONAL VISUAL THEATRE
A striking adaptation of Madame Butterfly, exploring themes of love, disappointment, loss and hope, created by Ramesh Meyyappan (Snails & Ketchup), on tour following a sell out run in Singapore.
This haunting piece uses visually poetic narrative, beautiful handcrafted puppets (by Gavin Glover) and music (by David Paul Jones) to tell the tale of Butterfly, a female kitemaker, whose life has been shattered following the departure of her lover. Meyyappan’s established visual style is complemented by the outstanding puppetry, creating a lush, textured, innovative piece of theatre.
