Pickled Image & Green Ginger Production Company

Pickled Image

'Pickled Image is a production company specialising in puppetry for live performance and theatre. Since 2000 the company has created a distinct trademark style, which has become the brand for all its productions.'

'Over the years the company has gained international recognition for their darkly humorous visual productions and has won many awards for their work. Proud to be at the forefront of British puppetry the company is continuing to create exquisite puppets and performances, which are enjoyed all over the world!'

Green Ginger
Green Ginger makes award-winning theatre for both streets and stage, creates short puppet films and 'mockumentaries' and offers accessible educational workshops tailored to suit any age group or ability. Since its formation in 1978, the Company has had a commitment to puppetry in the widest sense and its practitioners will use any tools and effects they can put their grubby little hands on to realise its surreal and absurd imagery.'

Green Ginger acts as an umbrella organisation under which freelance theatre makers work together to write, design, teach and perform. Its members regularly collaborate with organisations such as Aardman Animations, Ecole Superiere National de la Marionnette (France), Welsh National Opera and the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and the Company receives invitations for commissions and consultancies for stage, TV, film and community projects.'

'Green Ginger offers a new form of cultural exchange through films in which attitudes both real or imaginary can be aired in safety through the anonymity of puppets.'

Pickled Image and Green Ginger are a good example of marionette making and puppetry skills still being used in today's industry. What maintains this need opposed to other forms of modern production are their individual style and an old fashion sense of live theatre and interaction with the audience.
