Puppet Animation Scotland: Head in the Clouds
Sat 8 April 2017, 12:00 – 12:45 BST
Edinburgh Libraries are delighted to welcome the Puppet Animation Festival for a series of special performances in Libraries across the city during the school holidays.
Cirrus the dog has a serious job to do – he has to keep watch on the sheep. What to do when they lose themselves, drifting amongst the dancing clouds? How can he help these woolly-headed dreamers get back down to earth?
Inspired by the poetry of William Wordsworth and the landscape of Cumbria, the lyrical and rhythmic writing is intended for those with words, as well as for those without.
Designed for 0-5 year olds and their families to enjoy together, this is theatre that surrounds with sound, touch and visual treats. Guided by the performers, all audience members are invited to help create the story’s landscape and atmosphere. A series of boxes are opened to reveal objects that, in their sharing, become part of the action – and there’s always time to explore things at the end too.
