It's fun, it's smart, and it leaves you wanting more.

Edmonton Journal

Ignorance is a puppet documentary about the evolution of happiness. The Old Trouts seek the origin of bliss amongst the ignorant – our prehistoric ancestors, who stamped the stones with grubby feet and howled in common joy. The Old Trouts will try to explain where we went wrong, and how we might find our way once again. Not only that: it’s the first attempt at what we’re calling Open Creation – the entire show has been written on the web for all to see and for all to comment, criticize, or contribute. Visit www.theoldtrouts.org/ignorance to tell us what you think.

Starring: Peter Balkwill, Pityu Kenderes, Trevor Leigh • Directed by: The Old Trout Puppet Workshop • Video Designer: Jamie Nesbitt • Lighting Designer: Cimmeron Meyer • Sound Designer: Trevor Leigh • Costume Designer: Jen Gareau

“Mind-blowing originality… [The Trouts] are boldly reshaping puppet theatre into sophisticated adult entertainment.” – Fast Forward Weekly
