Dating Mr. C is a solo performance combining puppetry and physical comedy. The performance is a story on not being in a relationship and a commentary on individual’s right for living outside the society’s traditional norms.
In the centre of the story we’ll meet Kielo in her thirties. She’s traveling through life towards the inescapable. Or is it inescapable after all? What will be Kielo’s favourite flower and her happy ending?
