3 Stages for Lazarus
by Christopher Leith
Taz was the Producer for this performance, which was shown at the White Rock Theatre in Hastings in July 2015 and at JW3 in London as part of the Suspense Puppetry Festival 2015.
Combining live puppetry, acting, music, and using the story of Lazarus (minus Jesus), 3 Stages for Lazarus explores issues of life, death, illness, transformation, and investigates notions of creativity. Written by master puppeteer Christopher Leith, who sadly passed away a couple of weeks before the performance at the Suspense Puppetry Festival after living with Motor Neurones Disease for 3 years. This project was as much about the development of Christopher as an artist with a degenerative illness and how his creative ideas continue to have a voice.
