A BOY WHO RIDES THE SKY,
A GOOSE GIRL AND A RAVEN WOMAN
THE SNOW CHILD
ORIGINAL CHILDREN’S THEATRE FOR CHRISTMAS.
If you have ever wondered how Santa’s reindeer fly then come and see Chalk Circle Theatre Company’s latest production, The Snow Child, a magical story from the frozen North.
The original 40 minute play inspired by a Russian folktale tells the story of Solver who tames the wild reindeer with ancient songs. Solver sets out on a quest to find the girl of his destiny and although he finds the Goose Girl tending fields of Snow Geese, their happiness is shortlived. What is it the Raven Woman wants? Why does Solver lose his song and who is in the forest dreaming of a snow child?
The play written by Belona Greenwood and directed by Adina Levay is a highly stylized fusion of performance, music, puppetry and projection. Chalk Circle Theatre Company based in Norwich has drawn together musician and composer, Cath Evans and the theatrical design talents of Moyses Gomes and Sophia Egler. Experienced actress Hetty Rance performs in a tour de force of puppetry, song, movement and lyrical storytelling.
