Masters of puppets

Blind Summit Theater will present an adult puppet show Nov 1 and 2.

The Table is about a puppet named Moses who's trapped on a tabletop. Moses uses movements to express his thoughts, while he explains to the audience how he ended up stuck on the table and the people he encountered there. It's a poignant story full of black humor.

The UK troupe is best known for creating the puppetry in Anthony Minghella's award-winning opera Madama Butterfly. It also sent 50 puppeteers to bring giant puppets of Voldemort, Captain Hook and the Queen of Hearts to life at the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony.

8 pm, Nov 1-2. Experimental Theater, Guangzhou Opera House. 020-3839-2888.
