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.

"Funny, charming, inviting, intriguing and also thoroughly thought provoking. Such a wonderful collection of ideas. Lovey performances too. A real delight.”

“Funny yet very current, topical/poignant issues covered – cannot wait to see the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle come together to form a finished piece”
