“A Heart at Sea is an emotional, ingeniously imaginative piece of storytelling…Young or old, this show tugs at the heartstrings” Young Perspective, Aug 2017 Be enthralled by this epic musical folktale told on a miniature scale.

A Heart at Sea uses haunting live music to tell the story of a young Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea. Original song-writing is set to breath-taking visuals centered around a beautifully carved wooden chest that holds the secrets to the story. Intricate puppets are swept through a transforming wooden world created by the spectacular chest. Be astounded as backdrops flip up, pirouette and change, sending the Boy tumbling through danger and discovery. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, sea captains and beards. The original songs, composed by Avi Simmons, knit together the atmospheric tale through live vocals, instruments and a loop station. The music sweeps through echoing soundscapes to create a visceral, heart-warming experience. Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart.

This is a piece of stunning visual storytelling and intimate gig-theatre that will resonate with all ages. Suitable for ages 7+ and their families.
