Yurtakids! The Red Bike (Principio Attivo Teatro)

By | Published on Tuesday 20 August 2013

A delight of mime, shadow puppetry and storytelling, ‘The Red Bike’ is a tale which audiences of any age can enjoy. Detailing a city in which a financial tyrant steals the shoes of his poor workers, this show has a larger message to deliver about money, hidden beneath a charming tale about a growing family. A strong, humorous and expressive company enchant all audience members and more than a few adult tears were shed, whilst the innovative venue adds a touch of magic. Intelligent children’s theatre which spins an intricate yet engaging narrative, ‘The Red Bike’ is a breath of fresh air in a festival where volume is often prioritised over value.

Summerhall, until 24 Aug, 2.00pm.
