Published 13 Aug 2016

What happens in the show?

Two friends are washed up on a kind of magical and mysterious island. They explore a shipwreck by using their imagination and dancing.
 
Describe the show in five words

Dancey, rhythmic, energetic, creative and loving.
 
Who was your favourite character and why? 

There were only two characters and I didn’t have a favourite out of those two because they were such a good couple.
 
Were there any characters you didn’t like? 

No
 
What did you like most about the show? 

I liked that I got sucked into the exploration of the island and I how they used all the props. The performances were excellent and I liked how much work they must have put in to the show. 
 
What didn’t you like about the show?

It isn’t their fault but I couldn’t see very well from my seat and had to sit on my dad’s knee.
 
What did you think of the songs (if appropriate)?

There weren't any songs but there was a lot of rhythm and music and I really liked how they used it. 

What did your grown-up think of the show? 

This was straight up one of the best kids shows I’ve ever seen at the festival. It was warm, inventive and unique; basically everything I hope we’ll see when Ruby and I go to a show. 

Would you tell your friends to come and see the show? 

I can see how younger children might not like it so much because they could need more story and talking, but anyone 7+ or with a good imagination will love it.
