Take Flight

Take Flight is a production about finding belonging in a world of otherness. It is a journey across continents to a place beyond appearances; a place we long for but are not sure exists. A collaborative South African-Polish puppetry production for young audiences, Take Flight uses diverse forms of puppetry, song and live performance to create a vivid world in which the two main characters look for somewhere they may be at home.
