Be enthralled by this epic musical folktale told on a miniature scale. "A Heart at Sea" uses haunting live music to tell the story of a young Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea. Intricate puppets are swept through a transforming wooden world created by the spectacular chest. Be astounded as backdrops flip up, pirouette and change, sending the Boy tumbling through danger and discovery. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, sea captains and beards. Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart. This is a piece of stunning visual storytelling and intimate gig-theatre that will resonate with all ages.
