Wild - T0935965081Autumn leaves are for kicking, water is for splashing, pebbles are for skipping, sticks are for snapping, legs are for jumping, arms are for swinging, mouths are for laughing and voices are for singing. WILD is a leaping, laughing, somersaulting, participatory, dance-theatre performance for children aged 6 to 10, bringing together dance, physical storytelling, voice and percussion. Drawing on traditions of Eastern movement and inspired by the writings of Jay Griffiths, Gary Snyder and Ted Hughes. Created by artistic director/choreographer Apple Yang, children's author Chris Speyer and composer and children's music specialist Alan Boxer. We are all wild at heart, but in this age of virtual realities that taste of nothing, smell of nothing, offer no risks or real adventures, we are losing touch with our wild selves and the wild world around us. WILD is a journey back to wildness.

Life After Life & The Heart of Him - T0206101515Life After Life takes us on the hero's journey from birth, through childhood and the arrogance of youth, to the struggles in adult life to balance the quest for individuality with the demands of tradition. In The Heart Of Him, Apple Yang depicts the hero through the eyes of his lover, the hero of one woman's life-story, and asks does she believe in him because she loves him, or does she love him because she believes in him?
