If you see a bluebell, pick it, ring it three times and repeat the following words:
'Bluebell, bluebell, fairy flower, I beckon your greatest power’.
Then, place it near your heart and the Bluebell Fairy will come to you.
Long ago and far away a King and Queen were placed under a spell. Fertility was disrupted. They called the Bluebell Fairy, but magic comes at a cost and woe betide those who do not keep their promises.
Weaving together stories, objects and characters from ancient folktales collected by Angela Carter, Italo Calvino, the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, as well as interviews with parents and carers, Bluebelle is a wondrous and mysterious tale about life and how to protect it.
Using their signature combination of visually striking poetic theatre and lyrical live music, Theatre Re's stunning new performance is a journey into the wilderness of parenthood, and a reminder that life is shaped by the stories we tell and leave behind.
This performance focusses on movement, and has little spoken word/lyrics. Music and sound are used throughout to support the clarity of key narrative points. All sounds are created live on stage by the performers. The audience is not meant to hear what the performers are saying but see that they are speaking to each other.
Age Recommendation: 8+
