: Rafael Gomezbarros :

Our teacher of our Puppetry workshop this term Trina Gaskell has worked on many productions one of which I saw a few years ago. Humans in ant costumes interacted silently with children in a large public space collaborating , collecting and building with out instruction or words.

This work "Casa Tomada " by Rafael Gomezbarros reminds me of that wonderful and slightly terrifying for a two year old, experience.

The interplay between scale, repetition and representation is wonderful.

 My son still has a fear of insects two years later.... I say it was worth it, he may say otherwise.
