The Water Babies
Please select date and time
LONDON INTERNATIONAL MIME FESTIVAL SHOW. After a harsh beginning of child labour in an unforgiving world, a little chimney sweep's suffering ends when he is transformed into a water baby. As he plunges into an underwater realm of fish, caterpillars and caddisflies, we are drawn into his adventures in the colourful depths, swept along with his dreams and new freedom. With specially commissioned music, beautiful long-string marionettes and ghostly shadows, this gorgeous new production, inspired by Charles Kingsley's famous novel, explores themes of loss, friendship and transformation. All shows are accessible to deaf & hard-of-hearing audiences. There will be a post-show discussion on 19 Jan at 3pm.
Age limit: Suitable for age 4 +
Running time: 60 min, including interval
The relaxed performance is on 19 Jan 11:00 am in Little Venice
