From simple organisms to complex beasts! A story of evolution told entirely with hands.
Constantly shifting and changing, human hands move and morph in unusual ways, creating unexpected creatures.
With no central character we flow between water, land and air, on a strange and mesmerising journey through nature.
Hopeful Monsters is a non-verbal piece of visual theatre set to an emotive and humorous soundtrack.
Through innovative hand puppetry, a single element is pushed to its limit, discovering how much it can do and become.
Hopeful Monsters is both a public and a community event for residents and children from Byker. All children will be accompanied by trained facilitators, and this performance will be a relaxed performance. As this will be the first time in a theatre for many of our visitors, some children may need to move around and go in and out of the space – which we will be allowing during the performance.
For adults & children 6 +
Like Planet Earth with hands!
