A Thing Mislaid


A new show from Maison Foo full of footsteps, feathers and hope – on tour

‘Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach astray, you’ll find two lost souls. Running. Running with a thing. A thing mislaid. A thing without a flock, looking for a place to belong.’

Maison Foo blend their trademark style of visual storytelling, clowning and humour, with new experiments in miniature puppetry and live camera.

Travelling through cinematic worlds and surreal realities, A Thing Mislaid explores themes of migration and journey, asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong’? A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.

All shows with be captioned in English and Arabic using the Difference Engine.
