The Tale of Mr Tumble

The Tale of mr Tumble

Part of Manchester International Festival

Amongst the many strokes of genius that have been part of MIF over the years, this one is right up there.

Mr Tumble is a remarkable creation. If you've ever watched kids watching him, you'll know why. Like the best silent film comics, Justin Fletcher can communicate using every part of his body and face, using combinations of mime, mimcry and superb comic timing to tell stories and thrill children.

That his work is so inclusive, and that he is adored by little ones, makes him an artist more than worthy of inclusion in MIF15.
