Loose Ends by Jens Altheimer

Loose Ends is highly visual, mainly non-verbal and full of eccentric contraptions and clown powered theatre. A heartfelt story about friendship, its pitfalls and its triumphs. With a touch of Wallace and Gromit and Mr. Bean, it is a magical journey through a tinkering wonderland of wacky thingamabobs, puppetry, shadow play and invention that captures the hearts of children and adults alike.

This is a residency tour, and Jens will be in your community for two days. Each community would have the option of having a range of workshops the day before the show. These are targeted at both schools and different community groups. The themes of the workshops are designed to be able to accommodate individual/locally specific interpretations, so when the audience comes to see the show, there will be local references in some scenes provided by the workshop participants. 

Please download the Presenter pack for detailed workshop offerings.
