Mouth Open, Story Jump Out
A Battersea Arts Centre Production
It's all in you.
- Conceived & created by Polarbear
- Dramaturgy by Yael Shavit
- Design by Marie Blunck
★★★★★ 'life-affirmingly brilliant.' The Scotsman
'The best thing about the show was that he made it about us' Young audience member
Polarbear makes things up: stories, jokes, adventures – he’s a master maker-upper. But where did it all begin?
Mouth Open, Story Jump Out is about the moment that started it all, and how one little decision set off a chain reaction that changed his life forever. International assassins, secret codes, dog-eating boa constrictors and more emerge when a father disappears and a boy discovers a talent for telling tales.
An inspiring show about the creative potential inside all of us by one of the UK’s most respected spoken-word artists.
