“Why are my flowers fading?” asks Little Ida of her companion. “They have been dancing all night” comes the reply. Wondering, the little girl lays the posy in her doll’s cradle at bed time…
As playthings and flowers join the dance for one magical night, the enchantment begins.
“A magic world – was totally drawn in as if by a spell” – The Stade, Hastings.
LITTLE IDA’s FLOWERS is Hans Christian Andersen’s first original fairy story for children. TheatreRotto’s puppeteers animate the tale with marionettes, hand puppets, shadow theatre, original live music and visual wizardry. The show lasts for 45 minutes is suitable for children upwards of 4 years of age as well as adults.
Following the show, practitioners from TheatreRotto will lead participants in a fun shadow puppet-making workshop inspired by Little Ida’s Flowers.
Children can work alongside family members/carers or friends and a puppet creation will be taken home at the end of the day.
