Small Wonders by Punchdrunk
2 June-13 July
Venture into Nanny Lacey's flat in this magical experience for children ages 5 to 11
Inside Nanny Lacey’s flat are her collection of miniatures. These homemade creations capture the adventures she’s shared with her daughter Bella over the years. Like 3D photographs, they’re treasured moments of time and each one tells a different story.
As Nanny Lacey has gotten older she’s started to forget things. Change is on the horizon and she’ll soon move into a care home. Before she goes, there is one final miniature to share and story to be told.
In this magical, interactive experience for children aged 5-11 years and their families, Bella invites you to join Nanny Lacey in her flat in Tottenham and explore the tiny worlds she has created.
Conceived by Punchdrunk, pioneers of a unique form of theatre where audiences experience sensory worlds, Small Wonders is written by Nessah Muthy and inspired by the local stories and dreams of the Tottenham UpLIFTers.
This new family show explores the power of our imagination and how the little things in life are sometimes the most important.
Commissioned by Punchdrunk, LIFT and Bernie Grant Arts Centre.
