The Forest is a thrilling new performance combining dance, images, sound and light from the creators of Brilliant and And The Rain Falls Down.

There is a place at the very heart of the forest. A place where things are not quite what they seem. People become animals, birds become music, wood becomes water, leaves become light.

Everything changes (can you hear it?), everything moves (can you see it?).

It is all around you. It is full of adventure. It is the forest.

The Forest is created by Young Vic associate company, Fevered Sleep, which has a reputation for making sensational work for young audiences. It is best known for its acclaimed trilogy of work exploring everyday rituals as extraordinary creative events; Brilliant (bedtime), And The Rain Falls Down (water and bath time) and Feast Your Eyes (food and mealtime). Brilliant was nominated for the Best Show for Children and Young People Theatrical Management Association Award 2008.

The Forest is aimed at theatregoers aged 5-7 years old.
