Balloon Boutique (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Gentle, moving little story about a childless couple told with mime, masks and balloons. There’s an awful lot of waiting around for those balloons to inflate, and some rather stuttery uses of music, but there are some stunningly beautiful moments, and the production has such a big heart that picking faults seems churlish.

Puppetry, masks, extreme balloon modelling. Start from nothing. Become everything. Then pop, wither or simply float away! A stunning piece of physical theatre for all ages, directed by John Wright, co-founder of Trestle. 'Great fun' (List).
