Live outdoor Puppet Show – Saturday 22nd August @ 3pm

East of the Sun, West of the Moon
Saturday 22nd August at 3pm (45 min show)

In the grounds of Lady Emily Community Hall
Admission free – 30 seats available (all ages welcome)

A tale told without words, the performance is tightly choreographed to a
beautiful soundtrack, enabling us to explore Nordic music both contemporary
and traditional. The influence of Nordic compositions will appeal to all types of audiences and introduce younger audiences to new musical styles. The rhythms of the music influence the puppetry, as visual theatre and music weave seamlessly together to create powerful and stunning theatre.
Funny, anarchic, moving and beautiful, the story transports audiences as they
engage with the puppets and take an emotional journey with them.
