Formatted Abstract/Summary
Making use of nothing but household objects and four pairs of hands, Argus transcends from the simple to the sublime when a fragile little creature seeks to find a home in a world where he just doesn’t fit in. This quietly touching piece highlights the beauty of an impossible life; one that is full of playfulness, joy and laughter.

Performance season of music (composed by John Babbage) for the innovative puppet theatre work Argus, in which the completely new approach of using bare hands, with no puppets, is ingeniously used by Dead Puppets Society. Topology (Robert Davidson, artistic director, bassist; Christa Powell, violin; Bernard Hoey, viola; Therese Milanovic, piano) performed the score live with the puppet artists.
