Orson and Valentine, as part of the Brighton Fringe 2011
Photos taken by Olivia Morgan.
A puppet play and Brighton Festival Fringe Event written and directed by Daisy Jordan, produced by Jake Spicer.
"Orson and Valentine" is a puppet play based on a french medieval folk tale, using hand-crafted table-top and shadow puppets to recount in miniature the captivating story of infant twin brothers abandoned in the woods. Whilst one brother is adopted and brought up in aristocracy, the other is raised by wild bears.
Orson and Valentine grow up in very different worlds; unaware of each other's existence, until the day of Prince Valentine's first bear hunt...
Performed to an original score of live music, this is a dark tale of brotherhood and estrangement, betrayal and love, and the struggle between nature and civilisation.
