Description The pieces were devised for table top performance, presented by visible puppeteers who animated their objects and interacted directly with them. Company members had been inspired to explore this staging style, common in European object theatre, since 1980 influenced by their participation in international puppet festivals. The work of French puppeteer, Jacques Templero in particular stimulated WOMEN ALONE and initially, there had been some discussion of inviting him to work with the company to develop the works. His availability to spend several weeks in Melbourne could not be confirmed and the project went ahead without his input.
