THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2009 RUNNING TIME: 60 MINS Wish yourself away on a magic adventure... The Tell Woman is a brand new fantastical fairytale combining dance, theatre, puppetry and design, with a narrative constructed through previous work with children. Funny, beautiful and sometimes a bit yucky, The Tell Woman is set to an original sound score with magnificent colourful costumes, set and props and is an enchanting performance for children and adults alike. Whether performing for children in such roles as ‘laa laa’ in the now legendary teletubbies, or creating televisual treats such as ‘boohbah’ or ‘in the night garden’, Nikky’s work draws its inspiration from close creative involvement with children. Nikky draws on the shared experiences of children and adults…What’s that under my bed? Where do stories come from? Who is my friend? How do I protect what is precious? How do I get home? Come with us on a journey through the fabric of myth and meet a host of weird and wonderful characters to find out the answers for yourselves.... Suitable for ages 4+ and their families.
