Sokobauno are a Scottish puppet theatre company based at the Kinning Park Arts Comlpex in Glasgow in the south of the city. We live and rehearse our work in the more tranquil and scenic area of Carbeth in Stirlingshire.
As well as creating a number of touring shows for the theatre and the street we also have a travelling caravan theatre, The Little Fawn. The caravan has a number of short performances and features the smallest auditorium for puppets in the UK. The caravan has performed all over Europe since 2012.
Sokobauno undertake commisions in puppet design and construction for theatre companies and help create large scale carnival puppets and carnival floats for street festivals and events throughout the UK.
Sokobauno was formed in 2004 by artist and musician Shane Connolly after his graduation in Puppet Theatre Arts. Since the company was created we have worked with various Scottish based artists and have close ties with The Scottish Mask and Puppet Centre and Puppet Animation Scotland, collaborating on a variety of these organisations’ respective events, workshops and festivals.
