By Dead Puppet Society
When Argus’s friends are taken away by the rubbish truck he determines to find them, no matter what. What follows is an epic and dangerous quest and Argus travels across the desert, snow, space and the ocean to find his friends and rescue them. On his adventure he encounters seals, spacepeople, sharks, cars, trains, giants, birds and other creatures, and becomes a hero.
The simple becomes the sublime when a fragile little creature seeks to find a home in a world where he just doesn’t fit in.
Making use of nothing but household objects and four pairs of hands, Dead Puppet Society creates Argus’s fantastical world in a low-tech style that has its roots in puppetry and its heart in old-fashioned storytelling. This quietly touching piece highlights the beauty of an impossible life; one that is full of playfulness, joy and laughter. Argus will expand the imaginations of adults and children alike.
