About Gobbledegook: In A Deep Dark Wood
Taking inspiration from fairy tales, In A Deep Dark Wood is a fun and interactive show about a little girl who bravely ventures into a dark and mysterious wood. Encountering tempting trees to climb and beguiling creatures, the tale unfolds as the young audience help to create a magical world using shadow and light to guide the little girl through her bewitching adventure.
Following on from the sell-out Planet of the Beetlebuns, Gobbledegook returns to the Lilian Baylis Studio with In A Deep Dark Wood, intertwining shadow play, interactive video installations and a thrilling fusion of contemporary dance and acrobatics. For those aged 2 - 4 years, there is a tailor made version entitled Deep In The Woods – with all the magic, but none of the scary bits.
In A Deep Dark Wood, developed at Chats Palace, is presented in association with MOKO Dance, a national dance partnership dedicated to opening the eyes of young people and their families to the power of dance. A programme of workshops and activities for children and their families will be available on the Saturday.
