Based on the much loved tale by Oscar Wilde, The Selfish Giant is a captivating and inventive show of storytelling, puppetry and dance.
One day, a Giant returns home to find children playing in his beautiful garden. He builds a high wall all round it, and puts up a notice board saying “TRESPASSERS WILL BE PROSECUTED”. Nobody wants to be with the Giant except the wind, rain and snow, and his garden remains locked in a wintery chill.
But one morning as the Giant lies awake in bed, something is different…
This magical, big hearted production performed by a storyteller and four dancers is choreographed by Darren Ellis and directed by Steve Stickley with music by Jeremy Clay.
The Wemmick Story is a magical production of dance and theatre based on the much loved children’s book You Are Special by Max Lucado.
The performance follows the heart-warming story of a wooden creature named Punchinello as he discovers that he is a wonderful and unique creation, made very special indeed.
Choreographed by Suzannah McCreight with playful designs by Anna Jones and set to beautiful music by Jeremy Clay, this melting pot of creative ideas promises to deliver a truly memorable performance.
That is probably the most delightful and moving piece of dance I’ve ever seen.
Based on the story by Doris Stickney, Waterbugs and Dragonflies is a delightful tale of the waterbugs’ short life under the surface of the water and their emergence into the sunlit world above as dragonflies.
Forget The Nutcracker, Springs Dance Company’s Journey of the Magi is the best Christmas show I have ever seen! I went along to see it one dark, wet and dismal night in Birmingham and I came out having been touched, amused and moved to tears. The Journey of the Magi looks beyond the tinsel and trappings and reveals the real meaning of Christmas.
David Bintley CBE, Artistic Director, Birmingham Royal Ballet
Journey of the Magi is a sparkling production of dance, theatre, song and poetry. Entertaining, powerful and compelling, Journey of the Magiis back - and it’s as festive, witty and poignant as ever.
T S Eliot’s poem, Journey of the Magi is the inspiration for the show. We are reminded not only of the famous journey the wise men made following the star to Jesus, but also of the ‘journey’ each of us makes every year in preparing for Christmas day. Images from the poetry and familiar Christmas scenes explode in a mix of laugh-out-loud funny, moving and entertaining theatre and dance. The result? We hope not only to entertain, but to offer a chance to reflect and refocus.
Journey of the Magi is enjoyed by children and adults alike, and can be accompanied by a workshop or series of workshops in theatre, church, school or community settings. For a taster of the performance take a look at the trailer below.
