Preview: Butterflies at Stockton ARC
Inspirational and engaging family show comes to ARC
Saturday 13th October 2018
Tangled Feet and Half Moon theatre companies are bringing their beautiful and inspirational show, Butterflies, to ARC in Stockton on Saturday 13th October.
A story about friendship, working together, and facing your fears; Butterflies is a family show suitable for children aged between three and eight-years-old.
Butterflies was created following a Dramatherapy programme that Tangled Feet ran with young people who suffered severe anxiety and who also acted as ‘creative consultants’ for the project.
Nathan Curry, from Tangled Feet said: “Recent reports suggest that 1 in 8 young people have struggled with anxiety and we wanted to find a way of addressing this using theatre but with an uplifting, fun, and touching story.”
When three friends embark on an exciting adventure to chase their butterflies away, they cross new seas to uncharted lands, on a journey filled with discovery. The only trouble is they’re all a bit worried about it.
During their voyage the group ride the waves, walk high bridges, skirt deep caves and climb to the sky, before reaching dry land braver than ever before.
Join the three intrepid characters as they step into the unknown in an uplifting tale of friendship, courage and facing your fears, told using innovative staging, breath-taking physicality, touching humour and a specially commissioned musical score.
