Derby-based Maison Foo are to premiere their groundbreaking new show – A Thing Mislaid – at Déda on September 21 and 22.
Inspired by migration, journeys and friendship this touring show celebrates and questions the idea of what it means to leave your birthplace in search of a place to call home once more.
A Thing Mislaid, began life back in 2015 when artistic directors Kathryn Lowe and Bethany Sheldon began exploring a commonality they shared – their migratory heritage. Both had grandfathers that had migrated to the UK from Ireland in the 1940s.
A Thing Mislaid uses Foo’s trademark style of humour, clowning and physical theatre mixed with exciting new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera to create epic cinematic moments live on stage.
