Things to Wear

About Things to Wear

Ages 2-6 years

A man and a woman, an old record player, a washing line and a large paper bag filled with wonderful things. Two very different people trying to fit together.

As clothes emerge from the bag, they take on different roles, different outfits and test their limits. They tease each other as they dance in and out of jackets, trousers and dresses, discovering new possibilities for play and transformation along the way.

The two opera-trained performers create a tender and enigmatic atmosphere, accompanying their play with beautiful singing from Henry Purcell’s baroque opera The Fairy Queen.

An ideal first experience of live theatre, full of humour and imagination.

“Dancing and teasing, exploring and imitating things – this show is born out of a child’s environment.” Rheinische Post

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Things to Wear are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
