ICARUS 

Icarus

His family is falling apart and he feels powerless to help. His father is far away across the sea, forced to work for the tyrannical King Minos, and is unable to return.

Icarus makes a decision: it’s time to take control of their fate. But what can one boy do against injustice? Can he save his family or will he crash and burn?

With epic storytelling and spectacular stagecraft, Icarus is a modern, fun and adventure-filled retelling of the ancient myth.
 
Please note: contains flashing lights, strobe lighting and haze.

IT'S HOT, IT'S NOT

It's Hot, It's Not

2 Feb - 10 Mar | For ages 2 - 5 

By Reckless Sleepers
'forty-five minutes of pure fun' Curious Mum 
'cleverly matched to it's audience' British Theatre Guide
Why is it that sometimes I’m hot but you’re cold? Why are there puddles and sometimes not? How can it be sunny and rainy all at once and also not at all? And if it’s summer here, why is it winter there? 

Reckless Sleepers is an extraordinary company who make work between visual art, dance and theatre. This surreal, funny and carefully crafted physical performance explores the weather in all its forms and takes delight in discovering the world anew and how we experience it differently, wherever we are.A highly visual show with no spoken language and plenty of music and sound effects.
