Prime - a thought provoking piece about bullying from the Netherlands. And today, the little one and I saw two fabulous shows. First up was The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Bootworks Theatre Company. Based on the story by Oliver Jeffers, one adult and one child sit in a little black booth whilst the company perform the tale using puppets and mask through three little windows. It's five minutes long and was one of the best ways to spend five minutes I can think of. We both loved it. Here's a little youtube clip about this utterly charming show.
The second show of the day was Sensacional where children aged 18months to 4years get dressed up in little white outfits and then explore a giant floor mat onto whilst colourful, moving images are projected onto the floor and onto them. It was a joy to watch this handful of tiny audience members exploring and making their own 'play'. B was a bit wary of this show at first but by the end, he was running across the mat with glee.The Queen's Knickers, adapted from the picture book by Nicholas Allan by our very own Mr B with B's Godfather. Telling the story of the day the trunk containing all the Queen's knickers go missing, we can't wait to see what B's Daddy has been up to as we've heard all the weird and wonderful music he's been making in his little attic office. If you fancy seeing The Queen's Knickers, it's at London's South Bank Centre next week and then back to The Egg again in the week commencing 26th February.
