A selfish King replaces his melodic songbird with an all mod-cons mechanical gizmo – then wonders if something is missing from his life.
Horse + Bamboo makes theatre that is fantastically visual. Stories are told through a mesmerising blend of masks, puppetry, animation, vivid performance and original music.
