Endo The Earthworm
Deep beneath the dark, damp earth, Endo eats and eats...
Designed for mid-to-large audiences, Endo The Earthworm is a collaboration with acclaimed musicians Jonathan Rees and Tabea Debus, developed with the generous support of the Ministry of Culture and Science of North Rhine-Westphalia, The Earthworm Society of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Buglife UK, and our supporters on GoFundMe.
An educational family show lasting 40 minutes, the play features three musicians, seven beautiful puppets, and two actor-puppeteers from Rust & Stardust.
Join Endo the Earthworm on a journey to learn more about the world above ground.
With magical music and beautiful puppets, Endo the Earthworm is a gentle, heartfelt call to care for our natural world.
Developed during 2020 as a free online mini-series for children and families, Endo the Earthworm was created in collaboration with award-winning musicians Jonathan Rees and Tabea Debus.
After launching online in both English and German, the show was then configured for performance on stage, debuting at Brighton Early Music Festival in 2022.

Meet the Puppets
We have a range of specific workshops which accompany and connect with our touring shows.
These are the perfect follow up or accompaniment and encourage participants to reflect on what they have seen and use it as a starting point for their own creative work.
One of these is "Meet The Puppets" - an opportunity to meet our family of puppets and take photos in a fun and gentle introduction.
Participants can discover how our puppets are made, the materials used to create them and the processes involved, and ask their own questions.
