Horse + Bamboo Theatre Company have been making and touring high quality theatre for over 30 years. To sustain the company for this long they have had to keep their work fresh whilst also still providing Horse + Bamboo’s distinctive visual impact. Horse + Bamboo’s audiences leave with a mind full of lasting images that can rarely be compared to anything seen before or after.
Red Riding Hood is Horse + Bamboo’s first opportunity to fulfil their ambition of taking a traditional tale and giving it their own twist. The show, for 4 and up, is beautifully presented with lots of fun involved.
A young girl, a hungry wolf, and a walk through the woods – it sounds like a recipe for disaster, but Red Riding Hood’s not scared… well maybe she’s a little bit scared.
Horse + Bamboo present a gorgeously rendered retelling of the classic girl-and-the-wolf tale. Exquisite visuals blend with pantomime-style silliness and spooky moments to create an enchanting piece of theatre.
Horse + Bamboo will tour this show extensively throughout the UK between September and March including a 3 week Christmas run at The Royal Exchange Studio, Manchester and taking in Babaro International Arts Festival for Children in Galway.
Don’t miss this superb show at Trestle Arts Base on Saturday 21 & Sunday 22 December. To book call the Box Office on 01727 850950 or visit trestle.org.uk
