Synopsis
 
A sly confection of shadows and objected images
A series of elusive, decadent, shadowy reflections of La Serenissima, the seductive, rapacious city of Venice
The city that carries the seeds of its own downfall, personified by Margharita Monticiano, an ageing beauty who sees the world from her own voracious viewpoint

Premiered at Suspense Festival 2009, Intangible Cities of Margharita Monticiano first appeared as a collage shadow puppet show inspired by a story by Italo Calvino with images from Italian photo novels, romantic advertising and sweet wrappings, and a cast of 6 bizarre characters. The sound-track included old 78 recordings of Italian opera, slushy romantic songs, and street and café recordings.

The production was revived for the Norwich Puppet Theatre's 30th anniversary Gala in 2010, and since then the original show has been incorporated into a longer work about the city of Venice, ageing, and the decay of civilisation.

Directed by Joy Haynes
Performed by Meg Amsden and Steve Peck
Design, puppets, projected images and film by Meg Amsden
Technical assistance by Tim Hunkin
Soundtrack composed by Jane Wells. Sound technician Steve Peck
