About the Show/Event
Information for The Iron Man at Unicorn Theatre, Inner London (Play). The unexpected arrival of the towering Iron Man casts a shadow of fear across a small farm community. But when an enormous dragon from outer-space threatens to annihilate the planet, it is the Iron Man who comes to the rescue. Ted Hughes' classic modern fable is brought to life through colossal iron puppets, live and recorded soundscapes and a compelling mix of words, signs and audio descriptive narrative. Using paper-cut silhouettes, puppetry and stop-motion animation Matthew Robins (Something Very Far Away), recreates the world of The Iron Man so vividly that you'll feel you are there. His distinctive handmade and visual style of storytelling lets you watch this atmospheric tale being created live onstage.
