Fly Away, Petzel Gallery, November - December 2020

Derek Fordjour’s unforgettable foray into puppeteering, inspired by the Bunraku style of Japanese Puppet Theatre. Fly Away is the fantastical journey of a man whose name is never known, though we grow to understand him as we follow his quest for mastery along a series of fateful encounters. A cycle of wins and losses leads him to a profound confrontation, raising poignant questions of autonomy, control, and interdependence.

The show is co-created by Derek Fordjour and Nick Lehane, guided by puppeteers Dorothy James, Rowan Magee, Andy Manjuck, Emma Wiseman, and set to an original score by John Aylward performed by oboist Hassan Anderson
