Created in collaboration with the world-famous illustrator Serge Seidlitz, Spinning is a boldly visual, highly inventive trompe l’oeil telling the intrepid tale of a girl’s journey around the world. Spinning uses whirring mechanics, contemporary puppetry and striking illustrations to take you over the globe and beyond in this melancholic, hyperbolic love story.
Our aim was to explore the joy and surprise of a cartoon in a live theatre event, and to explore the creativity and challenge that comes from just a single black line on white paper, and where that line can take you.
