Agnes and Earl | Lisa Smith (AUS)
Discover the quiet, simple world of a pair of octogenarians and their dog in this charming pop-up puppet show.
It may be a little harder for them to get around these days, but Agnes and Earl do the best they can. They've always had each other, plenty of love and quite a bit of laughter; a quiet predictable routine. And that's enough for them.
Brought to life using puppetry, this work for performance is an excavation around routine and the nature of intimacy; a celebration of legacy and ageing.
"With Mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come." William Shakespeare
