Tonight We Fly presented Marc Chagall in all his colourful glory. Centred around Chagall himself the production uses an exciting mix of masks, puppets and live Klezmer music to, quite literally, bring the man and his pictures to life.
From his turbulent beginnings in a burning town to becoming one of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, Tonight We Fly explored Chagall, his family and his work.
