London is soon to experience a healthy bout of theatrical fever as acclaimed theatre company Fevered Sleep brings its family shows to a host of venues across the capital.
Kicking off the company’s month of performances, Little Universe, a striking and playful performance for under 5s, will play at the Greenwich+Docklands Festival on 23 June. Seen by more than 2,500 people in 2012, the show aims to introduce young audiences to everything that forms the universe, how these things move and how they move around and because of each other.
Following its performances at the festival, Fevered Sleep will travel to the Young Vic, where Brilliant, an enchanting show for children aged three to five, will play a two-week season from 3 to 13 July. Introducing theatre to young children and their families, the TMA Award nominated show uses live music, inventive lighting, movement and rich theatricality to create a dreamlike world made of light.
Completing Fevered Sleep’s trio of performances, the company’s first film will feature as part of a family event that incorporates dance, storytelling and workshops at The Place in Euston on 22 July. Suitable for children under the age of 10, the multi-format film, which was shot in locations across the world including the High Arctic, the Outer Hebrides, the M11 motorway and a dairy farm in Bedfordshire, explores and challenges images of climate change.
Renowned for its playful and profound performance pieces, Fevered Sleep’s family shows introduce young children to theatre through movement, live music and captivating imagery.
