In August 2020 Iklooshar and Mark from Garlic Theatre met Warwickshire Young Carers and asked them to respond creatively to the questions What do you think lives on another planet? They could send us any poems, audio, puppets or stories and we helped them with ideas for making simple junk puppets. After a few Zoom meetings a big package of their puppets arrived in the post and Mark and Iklooshar filmed the puppets and used their stories and poems to make the film.
The film was performed by Mark and edited with original music by Iklooshar. We were amazed by the puppets and imaginative creativity of the Warwickshire carers.
