In the darkest of winters comes the brightest of tales...
Two characters eternally on the run, but from whom or what? Sheltering from the storm outside, they share the tales of distant times and faraway lands, awaiting...
A new theatre show, rich in original music, composed and performed by award-winning composer, Alastair Collingwood. The show is produced in partnership with Shoot First Theatre, who bring their accomplished puppetry work and storytelling skills.
The show, designed for all audiences (Age 8+), is a journey through the shortest days, before the new life of Spring. It draws upon tales of deepest winter from Japan, Russia and across Europe, as well as those from nearer to home.
It includes shadow puppets, hand puppets and a Kamishibai, the traditional Japanese street theatre. The stories and songs could not be more diverse: from the joyful to the dark, the new and the familiar, all performed by the company of travelling strangers.
