The Little Theatre Of Dolls

The Little Theatre Of Dolls: "Little Theatre of Dolls show "

'via Blog this'

The Little Theatre of Dolls is a puppet company that consists of two artists and puppeteers,
Frida Alvinzi and Raisa Veikkola.
They met in the rainy streets of London where they eventually decided
 to fly over the puddles with their shared Scandinavian imagination.

In spring 2006 this daydream of reinventing the world around them became real.
That is when The Little Theatre of Dolls was born.

"It is true, the spoken word enlightens both the spirit and the soul.
Indeed, the HENDRICK’S Master Distiller can often be heard talking at length to her
‘two little sweeties’ – the delightful and peculiarly small copper pot stills
from which the most unusual gin flows."

With their creations, they invite the viewer into fantastical worlds where anything is possible.

The Little Theatre of Dolls will present their new show,
 "The Holy Dress". A creation story that draws on ancient cosmic origination myths.
From a universal egg a thought was born that evolves into Eve and Adam.

This story of creation happens inside of a dress and both puppeteers are stuck inside.
They work as the dual forces: the night and day, dark and light,
good and evil manipulate the elements of creation.

In beautifully crafted sceneries the audience gets to experience magical realities and stories acted by exquisite hand made puppets that all have been created by The Little Theatre of Dolls.

The Story Machine is a magical technicolor love story about a girl and a boy trapped inside a television with nothing but objects of desire. Using puppets and live action, The Little Theatre of Dolls has created a surreal world made out of recycled materials and charity shop treasures - and in this world anything is possible. The Story Machine is also a satire of our world of consumer-driven greed.

The puppeteers shown as the mystical masters of the universe seem to know the secrets of the story they tell, using the machine as the tool of creation. The piece shows the confusion in being human and over the collective consciousness of memories. The machine wants to transform the characters into what they desire; to transform it's victims and to make them transcend between worlds and to constantly capture their imagination.
