A Button in my Head
15 June till 15 June - Little Venice
In the dance of creation, hands give birth to the first puppet of the story: Clott. One of the hands is green and moves like a snake, it does not want the creation to be alive. It takes the head of the newborn and throws it very hard, breaking it into two half-heads...

Afterwards, a red button is sewn on Clott's head. A button that holds him together, but that makes him feel different from the others. His sister Juana, and his best friend Luchito, bother him. He only finds shelter in his Grandfather. Clott wishes he did not have that button and could be “normal”…

What are the Green Hand’s plans for Clott and his family? Will Clott’s head finally become unbuttoned?

Adults: £12.00

The Butterfly's Spell
01 September till 29 September - Richmond
A young poet beetle falls in love with an injured butterfly, a creature from outside his own realm. The other insects around him are disturbed: some try to persuade him to be sensible and remain in his own sphere, but others realise that the need to follow one’s heart’s desire, into the imagination, may be the only way to freedom. Lorca’s first play is a symbolist masterpiece, exploring many of the characteristic themes, of forbidden love and the imminence of death, that infuse his later work.
