"Feral" is an innovative piece of visual theater that combines puppetry, film, and live sound to create and destroy a world in front of its audience’s eyes. More…
Puppeteers manipulate and bring to life a tiny world, whilst simultaneously creating a live animation, as they follow its every breath via digital camera.
Joe looks back at the town of his childhood. Bright, vibrant, and idyllic, the world resembles a haven of comfort. But as Joe journeys on, walls and lives are peeled back and the story of a community’s fall unfolds around him.

Don't see it if Bad storytelling is bad storytelling, no matter what form it uses; “actors” so busy with moving props that the plot is never fully developed
