Stephen Mottram: The Parachute + Watch The Ball
We’ve resisted the urge to make a joke about tricks with ping pong balls. Part of the London International Mime Festival, Stephen Mottram’s double-bill explores the human brain’s ability to create life out of dead objects through simple object manipulation. It’s intricate, funny and original puppetry using just UV paint, ping pong balls and sticks - well worth the schlepp up to Jackson’s Lane in Highgate. You feel really attached to the ping-pong ball Man and his life story, which isn't something you get to say too often.
