Save the Pedestals

Based on the story by South African writer Ivan Vladislavic, under the direction of acclaimed choreographer/director Robin Orlin, with puppets by the Tony Award-winning Handspring Puppet Company, it follows the adventures of two struggle comrades who find themselves in a world of public monuments that have passed their sell-by date.

Maverick dance maven Orlyn takes Vladislavic’s short story and, with Handspring’s multi-coloured giant puppets, creates an iconoclastic piece filled with slapstick humour, which pokes fun at heroes that have fallen from grace.
