AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Using puppetry, mask, animation and live performance the perfomers deliver a grand epic western about redemption and dementia. As the sun sets, an old man and his noble tent go wandering into the wild. He is losing his mind. Swept up in a surreal world, he is on the run. Meanwhile, a mysterious tracker has caught the scent, and is hell bent on hunting him down. But while he can try and run away from the life he once knew, he can't hide from everything.'
