Fish Clay Perspex
World renowned for their haunting tales and strange animated figures, Nuffield favourites Faulty Optic present their eccentric puppet show, Fish Clay Perspex.
In a triple-bill of surreal and fantastical tales Faulty Optic manipulate puppets, pointy-footed armless figures, clay, pens and plastic and plunge you into their world of bizarre adult puppetry.
Breaking down concepts of traditional puppetry Faulty Optic combine dark humour, shocking imagery, mechanical theatre, animated objects and figures to unfold their strange and fantastical tales
