Combining music, animation, and live puppetry, the themes often explored esoteric subjects, combining ancient themes with 21st century multimedia technology. Working with a variety of other artists and performers , from musicians, dance and video animators Figure of Speech pushed the boundaries of non narrative performance.These pages represent a brief archive of the major works completed between  1999 and 2010 and is a tribute to all those artists and performers who worked together with Figure of Speech to realise a vision. There is also reference to the original marionette performances which started Jonathan Hayter`s puppet career as Figure of Speech...As an outlet for the creative performances ideas of Jonathan Hayter Figure of Speech ceased producing original performances in  2010 when Jonathan moved to Cornwall.
