'Marionette' is an absurdist and experimental theatre-for-film work about acting... or at least that's how it begins.

Follow two people who, with both hesitancy and curiosity, are led through various performance techniques and pedagogies by the omnipotent voices that puppeteer them. Marionette plunges you into the world of drama school and, through the disciplined to the absurd, unveils the full spectrum of how the artform is taught.

Inspired by the works of Pina Bausch, Vera Chytilova and Liberation Day by George Saunders, 'Marionette' will take you on a journey of striking theatrical film techniques, whimsical poetry, dynamic physical theatre and just plain silly clowning that you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home.
