【Family Series】Nobody Loves Me
A puppet show on environmental education
Come find the mysteries under the ground
For those who don't know, there is a very busy life going on deep under the ground although it seems quiet from the perspective of human. “Nobody Loves Me” features the adventure of the little centipede who is striving to survive in the extreme environment. It has to fight for its every meal while trying to find a new home to live. The exquisite puppets vividly portrait the unknown mystery of the underground world. By reversing the perspective from human to the centipede, we follow the centipede to see how close it was to be eaten by its dangerous enemies. It is the great wonder to see many of the vital creatures inhabit underground, at the same time, it arouses the audience's curiosity with affection on them and thus to respect and appreciate the beauty of the nature.
Puppet & Its Double
Since its establishment in 1999, Puppet & Its Double strongly believes that “everything can be a puppet,” as it makes great effort to expand the theatrical potentiality of puppetry in contemporary performing arts and to welcome every possible interdisciplinary experiment. With more than ten years being included in Ministry of Culture's long-term cultivation project, it has received several nominations at Taishin Arts Award with different works, while some made the shortlist of finalists, and has been invited to art festival in more than thirty cities at home and abroad around Europe, America, and Asia. Puppet & Its Double moved its base from Taipei to Wujie, Yilan in 2013, where it turned the abandoned barns into Lìzé Puppet Art Colony, the aim of the art colony, as a major international platform for creative puppetry, is to offer domestic and foreign puppet artists a place to experiment and to exchange ideas, while it also organizes professional workshops regularly.
