Cloudman - Tiny Little Christmas
By Ailie Cohen and
Directed by Alasdair Satchel
Soundtrack by Niroshini Thambar and Nik Paget-Tomlinson
Claude has always had his head in the clouds. He is a cloud expert and all of his life he has dreamt of seeing a Cloud Man – an extremely rare creature who lives a quiet life high up in the sky. Follow the clues to the very top of Cloud Mountain where the views are always surprising. If you are lucky, you may see something very special indeed.
Originally performed by Ailie Cohen, Cloud Man was part of the Made in Scotland Showcase 2011 at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It has been touring internationally since then, to China, Dubai, Japan, and Australia. Most recently, it toured to Beijing, where Cloudia became Claude and is now performed by Samuel Watson.
“Puppet maker Ailie Cohen has been delighting young folk and their grown-ups for many a Fringe with her original stories and fairy-tale adaptations. Cloud Man is no exception, a deceptively simple story that will melt even the flintiest of hearts.” The List ****
“Beautifully touching. A great show for any age group!” Jon Brennan …a beautifully realised and delicately performed piece of puppetry which entrances the audience and contains a moral message which doesn’t feel forced.” Edinburgh Spotlight ****
