Meet Robin, a ten-year-old boy travelling through the magical woodland of his father’s illustrated storybook. A tender tale which is as true as it is untrue. This is a show about finding light in dark times.

Warning: contains dancing, live sound effects, a little mayhem and more catchy tunes than you can shake a pine cone at!

Tetris 9:30AM Black Box Theatre Buy

Inspired by the game Tetris, this extremely physical dance quartet explore how we connect with one another and how we belong to a community. It investigates how we build private languages to communicate and then gently invite others to enter into our world. It is for the kids who can’t sit still, for the ones who like to climb walls and those who can imagine further than they can see.

“It’s a feel-good fully inclusive ending to a work of inventive artistry.” Londondance.com
