Photocall: Sisyphus pushing his colossal boulder up the royal mile.

Half a String

Photo & Film call:
Sun 4th Aug 2pm

The spectacle of a 5ft puppet Sisyphus pushing his 5ft metal and wooden boulder up the royal mile. A procession made up of this colossal stone, an intricate mechanical puppet, and live cello will push its way past the eager flyers and committed street performers. Marvel at this desperate attempt and a dramatic conclusion.

From Half a String’s production of Boulder on at Pleasance Forth:
