Four Go Wild In Wellies (Indepen-dance 4)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2018

Four little camping tents sit in a row. They start to shake and sway, one jumps up and down. Then the zips are pulled up and our campers emerge into an autumnal scene to get dressed and ready for a good old play (in wellies, natch). A game of musical statues ensues, and (gasp!) someone cheats, leading to a little light conflict resolution through play, and a particularly nicely done bit of meaning conveyed through movement. Inclusive theatre company Indepen-dance 4 have come up with a gently enchanting little show about which everything – music, set, story, themes and length – is spot on for the target 3-5 age range. Lovely.

Dance Base, until 26 Aug.
