Puppit + Digit did their first official live performance this weekend at the fantastic Pot Luck event at Creek Creative in Faversham, Kent!

The event is a scratch night with loads of great artists debuting new works. Puppit + Digit performed during the Play Time slot and worked the crowd outside during intermission which was perfect. The puppets went down a storm and got rave reviews from the artists and art lovers who made up the audience.

Initially sceptical, we thought that the reaction might be a bit cold but it was amazing to see how the puppets related to this audience. The beauty of P+D is that they allow the audience to express their own views and say what they like about themselves or the world around them. So even though Puppit + Digit may seem like they’re aimed at a child audience, they actually work in any situation because they act like a blank canvas, allowing the person contributing to say what they want. A child’s comment about ‘the amazing robots!’ is just as valid as a cutting edge artist’s opinion on world politics and Puppit + Digit allow both of those opinions to come through.

We had a guy recite an entire poem to Puppit while Digit captured a great video of a couple saying greetings in a bunch of different accents and languages. Here are the best of the interactions.
