Falling in love is a dizzy, giddy, hyper-real and surreal experience.
We can dance to its tune effortlessly because we’re taught how to.
The scene for love is unmistakable in this animation about a puppet and his puppet master. It’s a sweet pairing and courtship. It’s very easy to see this set in motion!
But love doesn’t always end with a happy ending. And that ending is sometimes solitary, lonely, and without an audience.
‘Pulcinello’ was produced by a team of Nanyang Polytechnic students: Lee Yong Yi, Sheetha Lakshmanan, Tan Tai Chi, Tan Zi Chao, Vanessa Yeap Min Rong, Gabriella Mesenas, Tan Jing Hua, Hong Kai Wei, Lee Rong Jie and Sia Chee Hong.
