ABOUT FACE THEATRE COMPANY
'I stitch you a song of how you became,
sewn traces of lives, your threads start the same
and bound to the canvas, spun silk of all colours,
these patterns and stitches each carry a name…'
The new show from About Face Theatre Company, Herefordshire’s flagship company of learning disabled actors, goes back to the very beginning. On the first day, all the water and all the earth were mixed up and nothing could survive. So the gods gathered in the six skies above and the six worlds below to create something magical out of the mess.
Creation is an immersive show for all ages that stitches together traditional stories from around the world. In an intimate space, with a tiny stage, the world is created before the audience’s eyes. The actors introduce a huge cast of micro-puppets and songs composed and performed on miniature musical boxes.
A beautiful show and a magical story for all the family!
