Biography

An enchanting interactive puppetry walkabout. Hodman and Sally have lived happily by themselves for hundreds of years, blissfully unaware of the changing world around them. Now they have ventured out in search of fame, fortune and friendship, enjoying a second youth touring the world with their possessions strapped to their backs.

The delightfully captivating Hodman Dodmanott and Sally Forth are a wee pair of wonderful wanderers from the proud country of Oblivia. Despite being completely oblivious (and proud of it) Hodman and Sally will adorably attempt to explain the new and baffling world around them. The effect of meeting this unique and memorable couple is often described as ‘spellbinding’- with people of all ages becoming completely captivated by the ingenious illusion and witty personalities of the two characters. A totally heart-warming and magical walkabout performance.

These characters are “pod” puppets where the puppeteer is completely concealed within the costume. This creates the charming illusion of an elderly couple of miniature proportions, with huge personalities and a not-so-firm grip on the ways of modern living. This is one of the most well loved acts around, delighting audiences the world over with it’s witty improvisation, charming characterisations and utterly captivating effect.
