Such As They Are

Such as They Are is a collaboration between sculptor/theatre designer Eliza-Jane Gilchrist and performer/writer Mark Penzak. Together they produce ‘animated storytelling’, short, eclectic performances that fuse puppetry and installation.

Shows are held inside specially created installations, effectively mini-theatres, where the proximity between performer and audience blurs the distinction and allows focus to be concentrated on gesture, detail and sensory effect.Their themes are the strange and ordinarily unseen, presenting enigmatic stories that prompt the audience to wonder.

“Intriguing, surprising and involving, Such As They Are stretch the limits of animated storytelling.”
