Vélo Théatre

From the bottom of the well, the frog believes the sky is round

‘the house where we were born is more than a dwelling place; it’s a space built for daydreams.’ G. Bachelard

Mr Brin D’Avoine spends his life collecting houses; some so big that they contain lakes and mountains and some so tiny that they are made of pins and disappear when the light changes… 

The legendary Vélo Théatre (There’s a Rabbit in the Moon 2009) returns to Brighton with its magical mechanical world of wonder and enchantment. With walls of sand, flying cuckoos and revolving lampshades, this special show takes us back to our own first home, where chairs could be very, very tall and reality is only half understood. 

This highly visual production is for a small audience of children aged six-plus and all adults who share their sense of wonder. It ends with an opportunity for an onstage exploration.
