Polar Opposites: Melting the Divide

Venue: South Street (Directions)

Sat 20 Jul, 14:00
Sold out


It’s easy to stand in the crowd but it takes courage to stand alone - Mahatma Gandhi.  A young girl rises up, urging the Decision Makers to save the planet before time runs out. Elsewhere, ill-equipped journalists go in search of polar bears. They meet a big-hearted Inuit, trying to save his home in his own small way. An award-winning company of young actors aged 10-13 will enchant you with clowning, puppetry, plastic bags and quite a bit of sliding around on thin ice.

  • 'This is very much an ensemble piece with strong use of physical theatre, beautifully formed tableaux and some powerful individual performances...This is an excellent, moving show with the young company performing with passion and a total commitment and the singing of the war songs adds poignancy to the piece.'
