The Erl King by Layla Holzer & Angela Carter

Coming Soon… The Erl King

Layla has recently been hard at work on a new project called ‘The Erl King’. Based on a short story of the same name by Angela Carter, Layla has set out to make a short film adaptation using puppets and costumed characters.

It’s an ambitious project and so Layla roped in both Spike and Marie from the Pack of Wolves to assist with various aspects of the production. Marie was drafted in to play the girl at the centre of the story and assist with puppeteering whilst Spike has been helping out behind the camera.

The film will be available to view online for a limited period upon its completion so keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for sneak previews and details of whereabouts you will be able to view the film.

Svankmajer’s Punch & Judy

We’ve been looking to the work of Czech animator Jan Svankmajer for inspiration as we prepare for our puppet shows as a part of our forthcoming exhibition at Milkwood Gallery.

Svankmajer’s Punch & Judy particularly grabbed our attention and we’re now thinking of presenting our own take on the classic Punch & Judy routine. You can join us at Milkwood Gallery on the 2 March to see these performances. If you can’t make it we will no doubt post some photos and videos online so keep your eyes peeled.
