The Tiniest Frog Prince in the World Ed2016

Puppetry, princes and projectors combine to create the enchanting ‘Tiniest Frog Prince in the World’. From Korean group Brush Theatre, comes a joyous retelling of the famous fairytale. The cast beautifully explore the story with such dynamic vitality that its predominantly Korean script doesn’t impede the audience’s understanding. The prince/frog is a particular stand-out, as the actor magnificently captures the amphibious essence of a frog; hopping, swimming and croaking around the stage. It’s a sublime technical achievement from the sound technician, who masterfully controls the performance’s atmospheric shifts with a host of different sounds, whilst simultaneously filming the majestic puppet staging for its projection onto the big screen. A charming delight, that’ll be cherished by children and parents alike.

C Venues, until 29 Aug.
