Performance: Dummies - The Dummy Company

If the machines of the modern world turned you into a ‘dummy’, would you stay silent, or learn to speak again? Featuring ‘Stomunculus the Homunculus’, ‘Dr.Shaboo the Shambolical Shaman’, and many more creatures of the Dummyworld. ‘Dummies’ is a radical rag-bag stuffed with puppets, clowns, automata and porridge, colliding sense with nonsense, adulthood with infancy, sanity with madness.

The Dummy Company are a London based performance group with an emphasis on object and vocal articulation. Alongside 'Dummies' they are working on a puppetry piece for children called, 'Trouble', and an ongoing project inspired by James Joyce's 'Finnegans Wake.'
