Walkabout: The Flying Buttresses

Location: UK

  The Flying ButtressesImpact Artists  

With unique performances that are as beautiful as they are funny, The Flying Buttresses continue to capture the hearts of audiences worldwide. Their strength comes from their dual commitment to stunning special effects and magical characterisations.

The hugely popular Hodman Dodmanott and Sally Forth, an enchanting, interactive puppetry walkabout featuring an elderly couple of miniature proportions, with huge personalities and a not-so-firm grip on the ways of modern living. Having lived by themselves for hundreds of years, blissfully unaware of the changing world around them, this pint-sized pair have ventured out in search of fame, fortune and friendship, touring the world with their possessions strapped to their backs. Although billed as a walkabout, the show is often a series of small, static performances when crowds who are drawn to the ingenious illusion seem to find it impossible to leave whether they are participating in Hodmané─˘s legendary dance routine; or being regaled with long-winded stories of past adventuresé─Â but then what would you expect from a pair of ramblers!

Hodman and Sally can now be persuaded to roam your way accompanied by their affluent in-laws Cash and Carrie Moor. Sisters Sally and Carrie are twos peas in pod whilst Hodman and Cash jostle to lead the expedition despite both having lost the plot and the map thousands of years before!
