Simon has something in his head. Paul has lost someone. Jigsaw is a reunion of two close friends
as they attempt to reconnect, to assemble the pieces of their lives, and to unpack thermodynamics.
Created from a desire to explore live storytelling in a two-dimensional, distanced space, Jigsaw is told through
animated film and an online meeting platform. With the performers interacting across different continents, Jigsaw
is a unique digital story-telling experience that is performed, streamed and viewed live.
Audiences may suggest a line of dialogue that is included in a moment in each performance, by tweeting using #Jigsawtheplay. We invite audiences to describe a significant realisation they experienced, or the
discovery of something new and unknown.
