Saturday Kid’s Club: Butterflies (3-8years)
Sat 12 Feb : 11:00 am - 11:45 am
A Tangled Feet and Half Moon co-production
For 3 – 8yrs
“I’ve got that funny feeling again… it’s a good thing, right?”
Three friends embark on an exciting adventure to chase their butterflies away. They cross new seas to uncharted lands, on a journey filled with discovery. The only trouble is they’re all a bit worried about it! During their voyage the group ride the waves, walk high bridges, skirt deep caves and climb to the sky, before reaching dry land braver than ever before.
Created in response to young children’s experience of anxiety Butterflies is an uplifting tale of friendship, courage and facing your fears, told using innovative staging, breath taking physicality, touching humour and an original musical score.
Butterflies is a co-production between award winning theatre ensemble Tangled Feet and Half Moon, the UK’s leading small-scale theatre company creating work for young people. This is an adapted version of the piece that toured theatres in 2018. Now in a traverse format with an adaptation of the narrative to support the exploration of how COVID may have affected the anxiety levels and resilience of children. By witnessing the characters talk about, accept and use their anxiety creatively to overcome obstacles physically and metaphorically, the piece explores how coming together as a community can act as a launchpad to explore well-being and mindfulness.
