East Midlands Children's Theatre Consortium Presents

THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 RUNNING TIME: 50 MINS INCLUDING Q&A WITH DANCERS A playful introduction to dance, Telling Tales takes a fresh look at two well-loved children’s stories, alongside two new dance pieces. Look out for a mischievous version of the famous Hare and The Tortoise story; a dressing-up game involving a squabble over the biggest overcoat you’ve ever seen; and a speed version of The Golden Goose involving only 2 dancers but a cast of thousands. In the finale, Sea of Clothes, shirts and skirts take on a dancing life of their own!
