He asked what are we doing now? Starting a new journey she answered
Their house has been swept away by a flood.
Having collected a few treasured possessions,
they glide towards a new beginning.
A bed suspended above the audience’s head
a house on stilts full of puppets
puppets magically transforming into aerialists…
Let’s go – allow yourself to be swept up by the tempest!
Take the plunge into this sea of delight!
When the storm subsides we are left wanting more of this enchanted creation, which proves that puppets and aerialists can make compelling partners. The Stage
The company have evolved a delightful blend of all their disciplines and produced something unique and beautiful. The Good Review
La Tempesta explores how families can adapt in our ever changing fragile environment, how things can be transformed, up-cycled or re-cycled, and how we find love and resilience in the most unexpected places.
In collaboration with Little Angel Theatre, La Tempesta, combines puppetry with thrilling aerial skills to create a thrilling immersive outdoor performance for children and their families.
La Tempesta is supported by the Arts Council England, Foyle Foundation, Esmee Fairnbairn Foundation, Jackson’s Lane Theatre, The Circus Space, Archway Children’s Centre.
