Manipulate: Ragnarok

About Manipulate: Ragnarok

A golden age is ending. There have been three years of winter. The sun hangs low in the sky, unmoving, and the bonds of kinship are failing.

The world is breaking…

A young girl and boy battle to seek a future in promised land, moving through a fractured world as dreams and reality clash around them.

A collision of ancient myth and modern spectacle, inspired by the cyclical Norse myth of the same name, Ragnarok is a story of fate and self-determination, of gods and mortals, of th world's end and its rebirth.

Since forming in 2010 - and presenting its first ever performance at a Puppet Animation Scotland event - Tortoise in a Nutshell has developed into a multi-award winning visual theatre company that has presented its work to audiences with critical acclaim throughout the UK and internationally.

Ragnarok has been created as an international co-production with Figurteatret i Nordland, Norway and in association with the MacRobert Arts Centre, Stirling.
