What happens when the wildest parts of our imagination take control?

After the death of her mother, Ellie escapes into her own fantasy world of comic book superheroes and bewitching strangers, recreating herself as the ultimate vigilante. Running a-midst dark alley ways and sinister villains, she soon meets the wild and mysterious Beast and together they seek revenge. But as the walls of her new world begin to crumble, Ellie must finally face the truth behind her fantasies.

Following on from the acclaimed success of Killing Roger, Sparkle and Dark return with I AM BEAST, an award-winning, visually stunning exploration of the power of grief and childish imagination.
Sparkle and Dark is a leading British puppetry company, using unique life-sized puppetry as well as live music and UV landscapes to bring I AM BEAST to life.
