Puppet Animation Festival 2018: Conan and the DragonFestival
2 April 14:00 - 17:00
A traditional Scottish tale about a young hero called Conan, who against all odds, manages to defeat and banish a dragon from his village, in the far away forgotten regions of Scotland.
Told with hand crafted puppets and striking shadow silhouettes and an original musical soundtrack, Yugen Puppet Company re-tells the story in its own unique and humorous way. A heart-warming tale for the whole family.
Yugen Puppet Theatre’s founder and director Alison Monaghan has over twenty years of experience as a performer, puppeteer, director, puppet designer and maker and illustrator, also working with the National Theatre of Scotland, the Leicester Haymarket Theatre and Vision Mechanics. Alison’s work with her company is inspired and informed by Scotland’s rich source of folk tales and stories.
