Sea Story is an exciting and immersive dance theatre performance for the whole family
Weaving together 100 stories written especially for us by young people from across the UK, Sea Story takes you on a magical journey over, across, and even under the sea.
Combining dance, storytelling, music, and puppetry; expect storms, shipwrecks, pirates, and a very curious sea creature...
Recommended for ages 5+.
Duration: 50 minutes
Sea Story is highly adaptable and transportable, with minimal technical requirements. Suitable for unconventional performance spaces.
"Too late I saw it, a giant wave with foamy white teeth rolling towards me..."
“Truly inspiring and engaging… a wonderful adventure. The audience was totally enrapt.”
- Karen Kidman, Creative Arts East
" A wonderful show, beautiful storytelling… great to see dance and storytelling working together so organically."
- Felicity Paterson, Omnibus Clapham
"I feel like we've been taken into another world today. It's so important that children have magical experiences like this!"
Teacher, Holy Trinity Primary School, Margate
