Land Of The Dragon – Gwlad y Ddraig (PuppetSoup)

By | Published on Sunday 17 August 2014

PuppetSoup, a Welsh group that create spectacular and completely immersive storytelling experiences, have done it again with ‘Land Of The Dragon’. Mesmerising puppetry brings to life the tale of the Welsh Dragon in this fantastically entertaining children’s show. Swapping between Welsh and English narration, the beautifully choreographed movement of each puppeteer is delight to behold. Although billed as a piece for 5-105 year olds, it’s not for the faint-hearted: there wasn’t a child in the audience that didn’t cry. This is a beautifully put together production, the narrative challenging only because of how emotionally evocative it is. If you’ve ever fancied losing yourself in Welsh folklore for 45 minutes, this is the show for you!

Zoo, until 25 Aug.
