When a puppet is moved by a human puppeteer, who is moving the puppeteer? In this interdisciplinary performance piece, a relationship between puppet and puppeteer shifts fluidly throughout the piece, without keeping the conventional puppet-master hierarchy. As if reflecting our ever-changing emotion, social status, or imagination, puppetry introduces its diverse role; a manipulated object, friend, slave, missing soulmate, threat, psychological mirror, and a ritualistic vessel. The work flows and crosses various elements; from animation and toy theatre to body movement, unconventional and traditional puppet styles, live music and choir… to weave serious, emotional, and comical moments all together.

It is a pity that Shilo Kloko was at the Fringe so briefly, because it offers a wonderful opportunity to experience Butoh dance theatre and Japanese puppetry art. A Platinum Medal.....

Each part of this show was done with such style. There were sad/emotional moments, there were silly/funny moments, and there was everything in between. All of this done with a combination of butoh (a style of Japanese modern dance featuring dancers covered in white body paint) and puppetry. There's a curious beauty to this style of performance and something I've never experienced before, but I am very glad I did.

The show was unique, creative and very different!. The show got really dark and then silly and fun. It was unpredictable through out the show . I'd never seen a show anything like it. I liked the performer's movements and facial expressions. The fox like character came out from the animation was really fun. After the show, I liked the feeling of what just happened. I enjoyed the show very much. I highly recommend to see it.
