The Event Space, The Other Place
Through puppetry, live video, and audience interaction, we ask 'Who would you like to be today?' and ask you to help us tell a story.
After completing a playful ‘Career Test’ to personality-match you with a puppet, a tiny alter-ego is yours to steer through the daily life of a Roman citizen.
As our puppeteers animate the character in the miniature Roman world, we invite you to tell your character's story, which is then documented and will appear in the form of an online newspaper.

When you've taken the test, had your puppet and moved through the town, we'll give you a 'passport' so you can come back to the miniature town at anytime during the project and move your figure.
