HOP

£5 School Groups (1 teacher free per 10 students)
Age suitability 4yrs+

A poetic physical dance theatre production for children aged 4 years+ and their families. Mr Dedalus and his son Icarus are trapped on an island. They long for home, but there’s no way to get off. Luckily Mr Dedalus is an inventor and thinks hard to come up with a plan to fly and hop away above the sea.

Hop tells a story of the dream of flying, never giving up, and above all the unconditional relationship between a father and a son. The show promises to be a total experience that starts the moment you enter the building where your journey with the company will begin.
