Wilkie Branson & Sally Cookson - Varmints - T1711289166

Varmints is a rich visual piece of original dance theatre for young people and their families, that tells the poignant tale of one small creature's struggle to preserve a world in danger of being lost forever. Every day the city grows larger and the noise grows louder, until there is so much noise that no-one can hear themselves think. Following a successful 2013 tour, Varmints returns with a specially added interactive post-show discussion in which the audience can meet the cast and discover more about the show. This exhilarating dance-theatre show is choreographed by B-boy and Sadler's Wells New Wave Associate Wilkie Branson, in collaboration with children's theatre director Sally Cookson. Co-produced and commissioned by East London Dance, Sadler's Wells and Stratford Circus, Varmints is based on the award winning book by Helen Ward with beautiful illustrations by Marc Craste. Running time: 1hr (no interval). Age guidance: 7+
