We talk to Moses's "bum puppeteer" Sean Garratt about performing The Table 300 times...

Which was your favourite show out of all 300, where and why?
It would have to be in the 'Under The Radar' Festival in New York. Whilst performing in the venue 'La Mama', it proved then and there that this show has a real potential to be an hour of epic exciting puppetry!

 Who was the most memorable volunteer?
The little girl that chases Moses round the table for nearly 5 minutes in China

How do you think you've changed as a performer from show 1 to show 300?
In show one I was still estranged to so much repetition in a show, coming from a hugely improvised background. But now after 300 shows there comes a reassurance that as a performer I can say 'hey, yeah I can 'do' consistent"

What's the most challenging thing for you about performing the show?
Not letting myself analyse what I'm doing. If you do that you lose the syncopation between the group.

Where would you like to see the show tour to next?
Japan! It would be interesting to see how the audience responds to puppetry that has been inspired by their tradition.

What has been the most memorable place to visit and why?
Saint Petersburg. Talking to the audience and festival programmers after the show made me really appreciate the need to have art and culture reach all parts of the world regardless of their state.

What do you think is the funniest moment in the show?
Walking in the wind!

If Moses had clothes, what would they be?
Adidas tracksuit

What do you think Moses would like to get from Santa for Christmas?
Some teeth so that he can eat his carrots!

What's the best thing about working with Moses?

He's truly unpredictable!
