Did you hear….. this Spring, dragons will be appearing all over Wales and England!!
Award- Winning Taking Flight Theatre Company are taking an exceptional story on tour….
They are preparing to perform their first tour of indoor venues, after years of performing at outdoor venues with their Shakespearian tales. This Spring they are performing at 12 venues around Wales and England with an inclusive and accessible take on Kathryn Cave’s book – You’ve Got Dragons
You’ve Got Dragons is a visual treat for young children, their families and carers, with enchanting live music and songs, animated creative captions, audio description and VV woven throughout ( Visual Vernacular – a mix of British Sign Language, mime and gesture).
A reassuring story that will help take the worry out of childhood fears. This delightful tale follows Ben’s journey to come to terms with her dragons. The audience will see Ben struggle to hide from them, shout at them, pretend they aren’t there and even try to make them laugh.
Artistic Director Elise Davison said: “We hope that as well as being a highly entertaining show it will also start conversations about ‘dragons’ and the fact that we all get them and make talking about feelings not such a taboo. Although this is not an issue based show – we hope to raise awareness of mental ill health in young children and show how talking about it can help us to realise that ‘no dragon is more powerful than YOU’.
Children and their families will be invited to join in activities pre and post show, including creating their own tactile, light up model houses. These will also be accessible, with audio description from actors describing their costumes and tactile costume mood boards to touch.
