What is it?
What do you have to do to become a real boy? And why is doing what you’re ‘supposed to do’ so difficult?
This December, Nearly There Yet present a new adaptation of Carlo Collodis’ Pinocchio at The Albany Theatre in London. The production promises an enchanting visual journey, combining circus skills, music, storytelling and puppetry. Featuring a diverse company, this unique family-friendly production draws on the community spirit of Christmas.
Faced by a stint in the circus with a performing donkey, a terrible and colossal whale who could swallow you whole, and even an anglerfish blues band, Pinocchio takes the audience on a hilarious adventure bubbling with excitement, acrobatics and most of all, magic.
Within an immersive soundscape and a tactile performance, audiences are invited to follow Pinocchio as he is led astray by the sly fox and one crafty cat.
Pinocchio brings together ARC Stockton and The Albany to champion equality and representation in circus and to build stories with strong relationships at their core.
