Lighten Up at Unicorn Theatre

Puppeteer-performers and a dancer play in the darkness with puppets made of light before being thrust into the spotlight.

In a Theatre Rites/Unicorn co-production, which premieres at the Unicorn, Theatre-Rites artistic director Sue Buckmaster collaborates with sound artists Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones (better known as club DJ's A Man Called Adam), lighting designer Aideen Malone and five multi-talented performers to use puppetry, mime and dance to take young audiences on a mesmerising journey of discovery about light.

Rope lights and fibre optics create radiant characters, fabric paints the air with colour and stage lights develop their own personalities and become performers themselves.

To the vibrant sound of club music, some performers escape into the audience in a bid to flee the light, while others delight in their exposure on a set designed by Cathy Wren with choreography by Arthur Pita.

For anyone over 5 years old.
