Puppetry Of The Penis

Puppetry Of The Penis
BATH  •  Bath Theatre Royal  •  Ongoing
Featuring the ancient Australian art of Genital Origami, this is a show where two well endowed Australians Simon Morley and David Friend, manipulate their genitals into various shapes, objects and landmarks. The show includes more than 40 heroic and hilarious installations including crowd pleasers, tourist attractions and food products like The Pelican, The Windsurfer, The Eiffel Tower, The Loch Ness Monster, and their signature creation, The Hamburger. A video camera projects intimate detail of the phenomena onto a large screen ensuring little can be missed.

Puppetry of the Penis was conceived by Simon Morley in 1996 as the title of a classy, highbrow art calendar, showcasing twelve of his favourite dick tricks. Their debut season at the 1998 Melbourne International Comedy Festival was a huge hit. Simon and Friendy then embarked on a national tour, circumnavigating Australia. This took eight months, covered 20,000 kilometres and was captured in all its glory in the documentary Tackle Happy.

Subsequent sell-out seasons in Sydney and Melbourne encouraged the boys to take their wares to the 2000 Edinburgh International Fringe Festival for another sell-out season.

WARNING: Puppetry of the Penis is a non-sexual show featuring full frontal male nudity.
