A hilarious tale of a man who misplaces his nose and embarks upon an absurd journey to reclaim the errant snout, and return it to its rightful place.
Surreal, dislocated realities are created as life-sized puppets interact with hand puppets, cartoons and animation, amidst an eerie soundscape and live music.
A nose that gads about town dressed as a General, a handbag that morphs into a dog, a doctor with a penchant for amputation and pint-sized, piranha policemen are just some of the nightmarish imaginings in the bizarre and macabre world of this darkly humorous adaptation of Gogol’s The Nose.

Carnival of Objects’ mission is to create unique and exciting performance experiences that explore the potential of the puppetry medium and capture the imaginations of audiences. The company is committed to creating high quality, innovative and entertaining performances that draw from a range of international art forms. Artists involved were attracted to puppetry partly due to its potential to marry a range of disciplines - thus providing infinite possibilities for means of expression. Influenced particularly by the Italian Commedia dell’ Arte tradition as well as Japanese Bunraku puppetry, the work combines moving sculpture, 2D art, animation, drama and live music.
