Maison Foo: A Thing Mislaid

Presented by Maison Foo

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, journey and home. A heartfelt tale of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.

 ‘Haunting….mesmerising... Maison Foo's thought-provoking quirky and timely theatre uses clowning and puppetry to explore the plight of refugees.’ The Stage ****

‘A Thing Mislaid is a magical and moving piece of creative theatre….Particularly inspired, indeed brilliant, are the sequences using miniature cameras operated by the performers’ Reviews Hub 4.5 Stars

We will be piloting Talking Birds’ Difference Engine to deliver captions in English and Arabic; making the show more accessible for refugee communities as well as d/Deaf and hard of hearing audiences. For more info: maisonfoo.co.uk/refugeefriends
