Tonight We Fly: The Story of Marc Chagall

14 August 2003 – 18 April 2004

‘A beautiful dream, full of joy and gentle poignancy’

The Times

‘Wilsher (director) has created a fantastically imaginative piece of theatre’

Eastern Daily Press

‘Although there is terrible tragedy, this is really a celebration of the wonderful and magical talent that was Marc Chagall, brought to life with sparkling ingenuity and intelligence’

Jewish Telegraph

I’m not painting the surface. I’m painting my dreams. And if you don’t like it…well…in your eyes I’m not an artist

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.
