Flotsam & Jetsam (3-6yrs)

Sat 7 Oct 2023 : 11:30 am - 12:15 pm


Flotsam floats, Jetsam sinks  –  Both their worlds are on the brinks,

The jagged arcs of waves and sharks  –  Chase them both in minds and hearts.

They must break through their tears and fears  –  And worries of a thousand years,

To find what’s true and out of the blue  –  Discover the other and a friend that’s new.

Flotsam is soft, flexible, laid back. She slides and glides through life on the ice. Jetsam is the opposite, his insectile body is stiff and nervy, alert and watchful, suspicious of all in his forest home.

And then comes the weather… and they are both cast adrift in a world that is strange to them and full of a range of dangers. Finally washed up on the same island beach they must discover the other and work out how they can work together.

A hopeful, adventure story about two very different creatures that must learn to work together. Visual theatre with original music and delightful puppetry.

Age recommendation: 3 – 6 years

Lempen Puppet Theatre Company tour their own unique brand of original stories told with puppets. Imaginative, spellbinding, surprising and sometimes bonkers, Lempen focus on puppetry, storytelling, light, music and a journey that takes the audience there and back again.

We are inspired to make theatre by Myth and Folklore, crazy characters, what makes us laugh and what we care about. We aim to produce quality productions for family audiences that connect the real world to the world of imagination.

Based in North Yorkshire, but touring nationally and internationally Liz and Daniel Lempen are also the Artistic Directors for Skipton International Puppet Festival.

“Liz and  Daniel Lempen with their gentle play, terrific manipulation, beautiful fun-grotesque puppets and wonderful music by Chris Davies, have created a most contemporary story that moves hearts.” Frank Demenga, Bern Puppet Theatre

“Beautifully crafted!” Karl Morgan, The Byre Theatre, St Andrews, Scotland
