Puppet Animation Festival 35 year anniversary
A traditional Scottish tale about a young hero called Conan, who against all odds,
manages to defeat and banish a dragon terrorizing his remote village, in a far away
forgotten region of ancient Scotland.
Told with hand crafted puppets, striking shadow silhouettes and an original musical
soundtrack, this heart-warming tale for the whole family is presented in Yugen's
unique and humorous style.
Yugen Puppet Theatre’s founder and director Alison Monaghan has over twenty years
of experience as a performer, puppeteer, director, puppet designer and maker and
illustrator, also working with the National Theatre of Scotland, the Leicester Haymarket Theatre and Vision Mechanics. Alison’s work with her company is inspired and informed by Scotland’s rich source of folk tales and stories.
