THE BORROWERS

“The perfect festive treat for all the family, based on the much loved book”

See it here first! Preview performances of a new dance theatre production that will capture the imagination of children, families and people of all ages, based on Mary Norton’s much loved book The Borrowers, about tiny people who live under the floorboards.

Choreographed by director Jane Hackett and dance artists Estela Merlos and Thomasin Gulgec, the production playfully integrates contemporary dance, physical theatre, animation and sound to bring to life this magical tale. Join Pod, Homily and their headstrong daughter Arrietty on a wonderful journey of discovery as they flee their home, overcome fear and danger, tasting freedom and adventure before finally finding a safe place to make a new life. Set within an oversized world of beautiful hand-painted animation, created by artist Betsy Dadd, with a specially commissioned score from composer Tobias Saunders.

By kind permission of The Estate of Mary Norton. Commissioned by DanceEast; created at the Jerwood DanceHouse, Ipswich.

Duration: 60 minutes, no interval.
