Kes is a mix of dance, physical theatre and puppetry. Based on one of Yorkshire's most celebrated stories, Kes follows the life of Billy Casper, isolated at home and school, who is shaped by two contrasting worlds; an industrial, working class Barnsley and the natural landscape that surrounds his Yorkshire town.
