Once Upon A Wall

by Fully Booked Theatre

physical-theatre-and-circus, children-and-family

A cracking interactive dance-theatre egg-venture for children and families.

about the production

An egg. A wall. A very big fall. Join Hum-T on her fast-paced dancing adventure through the streets of Lost Sandwiches. Build a giant wall, throw down some signature moves, and watch one very large egg scramble to the top. Kids and adults alike join in the fun on the egg-venture of a lifetime, becoming hoofed horses, hip-hopping with the Royal Rebels and helping an egg to see the sunny side of life. Commissioned by Stockton International Riverside Festival and Middlesbrough Council and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

about the artist

Founded by choreographer and performer Jennifer Essex and poet Harry Man, Fully Booked Theatre joyfully blends the worlds of dance and poetry together to create energetic, interactive and endlessly inventive dance theatre performances and workshops for children aged 0 to 101.
