Tarzanna is a playful aerial theatre show for all the family to enjoy. Watch the performers literally climb, jump and swing through the air

about the production

Anna doesn’t like mess, she likes things to be in order but her neat world is turned upside down when she is magically transported to the rainforest. There she discovers wonders she’s never seen before. Wild creatures appear and dance before her as she swings through the jungle of her dreams. When her new home is put in danger, can she become the wild Tarzanna she needs to be in order to save her new found friends?

about the artist

The Gramophones are a playful, all-female theatre company, who use inventive storytelling, physical theatre, clowning, circus and autobiographical work to create accessible theatre with a focus on women’s voices. We have made and toured numerous shows over the last 8 years. “Their work is always inventive, surprising and above all entertaining, each of their shows has the feeling of being a special event, subtly unique and unrepeatable” (Nathan Miller, HATCH)
