THE PATCHWORK COAT

 

I devised a puppet opera with composer Rob Jones based on the Jewish Folklore, The Patchwork Coat. It was performed at the Old Joint Stock on the 18th of March as a feature of Birmingham Conservatoire's Frontiers Festival.

My role on the project was the Artistic Director, making the puppets, projections, scenery and props.

'Collaborating with Cat has been a very exciting & rewarding experience. Cat has always brought brilliant ideas to the table and has worked amazingly hard to realise them. I have been astounded by the quality of the puppets and projections made by Cat and they helped to make our project really special. I definitely hope to work with Cat again as she has been fun and easy to work with.' - Rob Jones Composer / Producer.

Many thanks to my wonderful Puppeteers Hannah Padley, Louisa Ward, Jess Partridge, Beth Bellis. The fantastic musicians Christine Cornwell, Vicky Bonham, Juliana Day, Chloe-Jade Butlin & Rosie Clements. Also to AVentworks Ltd for Technical Support!
