It’s the combination of paper and cinema (and the total lack of words) that makes this such an unusual theatrical experience. The paper part is the puppets: for Rawling’s Punchdrunk-inspired ‘King Pest’ they include painstakingly hand-drawn pen-and-ink pirates, rats, steeply tottering village streets and the moon. And yes, even the street scenes come on a stick – the black felt-tipped kind of lolly stick that everyone who has had or been a small child is familiar with. ‘We photocopy my pictures from the book,’ explains Rawling, patting a large leather-bound sketch-book whose pages are teeming with ink-blot grotesques, ‘then cut them out and stick them on the back of cornflake packets.’ It’s an appealing, homemade aesthetic which might just verge on twee if it weren’t for the cinema part – a live video feed which is not exactly high-tech but requires a lot of dexterity and a bit of daring to achieve its delicate, dreamy effect.
