The show explores the fictional life of Joshka Malouth, a one-time apprentice to the great Harry Houdini. An old man sits on top of a towering pile of luggage. As the bags open up, a cast of bizarre and unusual characters emerge to reveal moments from his past. Won first prize at the Belo Horizonte Puppet Festival in Brazil 2007.

Truly stunning and engaging. The closet thing to a perfect piece of theatre I have ever seen. With the combination of music, sound, stunning puppets and characterisation it was sheer and utter magic
