PuppetCraft performs Circle of Tales

How the first story came to be told.

A myth from Africa retold by Gcina Mhlophe.

A puppet show for the whole family.

Perfect for everyone from 4 years old.

It all started so long ago that it is impossible to remember when. There were no stories at that time. One day a woman, called Mazindaba, set out to search for stories, asking friendly and fierce animals if they could help, but none knew any stories, or even WHAT stories were.

After hunting up and down mountains, through thick bush, meeting many scary and funny creatures Mazindaba was told by wise Elephant where to find the secret of wonderful tales to tell. ..

A fable told with African and English language, wood and wire puppets, video projection and the sweet, sweet sounds of live music played on traditional instruments by a wonderful African musician and sometimes with a 30-piece orchestra .. !

After the show the audience will be invited to play musical instruments, meet the puppets and chat.. and not rush away.

Music workshops will be offered before the show to teach anyone 6 years old + to play instruments to become a musical part of the show.

45 minutes for up to 30 participants. Families encouraged to do the workshop together.

PUPPETCRAFT is the top Devon based puppet troupe that has been delighting audiences for many years.
