Three friends embark on an exciting adventure to chase their butterflies away. They cross new seas to uncharted lands, on a journey filled with discovery. The only trouble is they’re all a bit worried about it! During their voyage, the group ride the waves, walk high bridges, skirt deep caves, and climb to the sky, before reaching dry land braver than ever before.
Created in response to young children’s experience of anxiety, Butterflies is an uplifting tale of friendship, courage and facing your fears, told using innovative staging, breathtaking physicality, touching humour and an original musical score.
This new version of the show, which toured to great acclaim in 2018, features an updated storyline exploring how COVID has affected the anxiety levels and resilience of children.
Butterflies is a co-production between award-winning theatre ensemble Tangled Feet and Half Moon, the UK’s leading small-scale theatre company creating work for young people.
