Approx. 45mins (no interval)
Age Guidance:

Amongst drifting waterweed and ancient moss-covered rocks the pond is teeming with life. Newts, snails, tiny minnows and bigger fish all go about their business as usual.

But strange things have started to appear. Things that crinkle and clatter and clutter up the pond. So much of it that the inhabitants are running out of space to swim, slither or play.

This underwater world is in need of change. And this is where a little watersprite awakens.

Sophie Nüzel’s work for children and families uses storytelling, movement and puppetry to tell an important tale of our time and how we can come together to create change.

For families with children aged 4+.

Supported by Landeshauptstadt Munich and Arts Council England. 

Jo Blake-Cave, Iris Chan, Eden Harbud, Marc Stevenson and Sua Tsubokura-Aguiriano
