From France, extraordinary animation theatre in seven short episodes, mysterious, unconventional and hilarious. A Distances is a micro-epic for two performers, shadows, puppets, objects, sounds, imagination and wonderful, clanking Heath-Robinson machinery.
From the same planet as Faulty Optic, Jan Svankmejer and the Brothers Quay, Jean-Pierre Larroche's Ateliers du Spectacle have been devising boundary-breaking visual theatre for more than twenty years. A Distances won the Jury prize for Most Original Production at the 2009 Valladolid Festival, Spain
‘Is it a show or a dream? It's both and more and unlike anything you've seen before. They are engineers of art and genius'. La Croix
‘Astonishing, poetic and completely original'. Il Messagero
