Tomte is an intimate shadow puppet performance adapted from The Tomten, by Astrid Lindgren, and the poem by Victor Rydberg.

A Tomte is a Swedish gnome, a quiet and unseen caretaker who watches over the lives of humans and animals. On a cold winter night on a snow covered farm, Tomte teaches families about the importance of kindness and looking after living things.

Following the piece, puppeteer Tom Lee reveals the technology behind the performance and the kuruma ningyō style as well as answering questions from the audience.

Saturdays at 11am.
Sundays at 2pm.
