Summer by the River: A Heart At Sea

190615 A Heart At Sea

A Heart at Sea is a piece of storytelling gig-theatre. Stunning visuals and beautiful live music come together to create a breathtaking spectacle. Original songs written and performed by Avi Simmons, and haunting live looped soundscapes, tell the story of a Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea. Intricate puppets are swept through transforming wooden worlds that are held within a beautifully carved chest. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, and beards. Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart. This is a piece of heart-warming storytelling that will resonate with all ages

The show will be preceded by a puppetry workshop at Hay’s Galleria at 11:00.

Suitable for ages 7+.
