Sparkle and Dark
I am Beast
Pleasance Courtyard, 5th – 31st August, 3.20pm, (Venue 33)
What happens when the wildest parts of your imagination take control? Yearning for escape, Ellie journeys through a flickering world of bewitching friends and comicbook superheroes. But as the walls of her new world begin to blur, Ellie must finally face the truth behind her fantasies.
Following on the acclaimed success of ‘Killing Roger’, Sparkle and Dark return with a visually stunning exploration of the power of grief and childish imagination, using original live music and life-sized puppetry.
A post show Q & A will be held in the space after performances on Monday 17th and Monday 24th August.
