    indefinitearticles

    Indefiniteartciles was formed in 1995 by sculptor Sally Todd and puppeteer Steve Tiplady to combine their passion for transforming the everyday and mundane into something sublime.  To date they have told stories with sand, oil, chalk, glass, a few drops of ink, a lot of clay, a puppet, here and there…and many a shadow.

                                                                                                                       TIME OUT *****

    ‘In The Magic Lamp they have created a bewitching 50-minute shadow puppet play in the round, against a set groaning with billowing muslin drapes’

    “It was very sophisticated storytelling, it felt very professional, exciting and at the same time it felt part of a tradition.”

    “One of the boys is not usually into theatre, but he was spellbound and kept saying ‘THIS is MAGIC!’” Audience member – Heike Feldpausch
