Maison Foo: A Thing Mislaid
Somewhere, on a nowhere road, just past adrift and before you reach a stray, 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 and journey, asking the question ‘If home is no longer home, then where do we belong’? A heartfelt tale full of footsteps, hope and an unlikely friendship between two lonely travellers and a mysterious bird.
‘Haunting….mesmerising... Maison Foo's thought-provoking quirky and timely theatre uses clowning and puppetry to explore the plight of refugees.’

‘A Thing Mislaid is a magical and moving piece of creative theatre….Particularly inspired, indeed brilliant, are the sequences using miniature cameras operated by the performers’
