The Iron Man archiveThe 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.
