"a big part of the job in writing about puppetry is to convince people that it's serious. It is serious. Its mediation between realism and fantasy makes it so. At the same time, however, it's a lot of fun." Joan Acocella, The New Yorker
If you thought puppets were just for children, think again. Award-winning Danish puppeteer Sofie Krog, together with Spanish puppeteer David Faraco, have created an ensemble of weird and wonderful puppets, all united by the story of The House; a character in itself. For this house is no ordinary house, with its very own disembodied voice it tells the story of the family who run the funeral home. The puppets are brought to life with such expert skill that they seem to have developed their own autonomy. They are also hilarious, holding audiences spellbound.
