Musical Theatre Dance with Lauren | LEAP Remote Tutorial | Chichester Festival Theatre

When the world is no longer your stage... 30 acrobats physicalise the shared exhaustion, frustration and complications of living within drastically limited space, creating absurdity and beauty while stuck on their sofas. A short film that gives a snapshot of the extraordinary spring of 2020 and how differently we all dealt with it, finishing with an invite to the viewers to share their own experiences from the comfort of their sofas...

We'd love to see your #MySofaDance!
There are instructions on our blog if you need some guidance on creating your own #MySofaDance and we're also leading a Sofa Dance workshop for families at The Spark Festival this Saturday, 13th February and Monday, 15th Fevruary 2021, organised by The Spark Arts for Children.

The Sofa Dance

In this new online series, Little Angel’s very own Little Angel puppet will meet and interview some of the talented puppet designers we work with, finding out more about their experiences of puppetry design and why they love working in the field. Each designer will also bring along an easy puppet make that children can follow along at home.

We have a very special guest this week: Angel meets puppet maker, puppeteer and former Little Angel Puppetry Trainee Shaun Lati, whose work for Little Angel includes Junk and Little Angel by the Sea.

Watch the trailer for Junk: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ilvCVIaBHTU

The Little Prince, presented by Metta Theatre. Donate to Little Angel Theatre: https://bit.ly/3kyDgpD.

A WW2 pilot has crashed in the middle of the Sahara. If she doesn’t find water soon she’ll die. But instead of water she finds a mysterious child – the Little Prince whose imaginative adventures and tales of far off planets quench a deeper thirst.

Written and recorded entirely through lockdown Metta Theatre have created a 6 track EP of songs from their new British musical spun into a short film retelling Antoine De Saint Exupery’s much loved story through the medium of shadow puppetry. 

Eventually the stage production of the musical will be a circus musical extravaganza in the same vein as Metta’s 2018 Little Mermaid.

Metta Theatre are an award-winning mid scale touring theatre company focusing on creating new cross-artform theatre. Founded in 2005 by writer/director P Burton-Morgan and designer William Reynolds they have collaborated with Little Angel Theatre on several projects over the years including a shadow puppet production of Benjamin Britten’s Canticles in 2010, a puppetry adaptation and 2014 UK tour of Alice in Wonderland, with acclaimed puppeteer Mandy Travis; and a circus/puppetry musical adaptation of Rob Biddulph’s Blown Away in 2017.

This film will be released for free on the Little Angel Theatre YouTube channel and will be available for one year.

Once you’ve watched the show, have a go at making your own shadow puppets. You can use our activity guide to help you: https://littleangeltheatre.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/The-Little-Prince-shadow-puppet-activity-sheet.pdf
