Choreographing Thought

One of a series of short films made during a workshop at the National Theatre Studio. Led by Neil Bartlett and Handspring Puppet Company’s Adrian Kohler and Basil Jones, this session explored choreographing the puppets’ train of thought.

A + B (working title) was a fictionalised portrait of Adrian + Basil, written and directed by Neil. The four lead puppets are A + B age 19 and, looking into the future, A + B in their 80s. This workshop developed into Or You Could Kiss Me which opened in the Cottesloe Theatre in September 2010.
