As part of the Family Learning Festival, ATMA Dance and Mayuri Boonham performs the story of a classic Indian folk tale retold through a dance – The Magic Fish.
The production is an interactive performance that uses dance, music, interactive storytelling and beat-boxing for young thinking minds between five and nine years old.
On Tuesday 24th October there will be two chances to see The Magic Fish at 10am and 2pm.
A tasty children’s menu will also be available at our new café – The Rooftop Cafe, upstairs at Kala Sangam.
Join Kala Sangam for a variety of FREE child friendly fun throughout the day alongside the performances. Activities include art, dressing up and story time activities to name a few. ATMA Dance will also be delivering a fun, FREE family workshop from 12:00 until 12:45.
The Magic Fish Story
Shape-shifting god Vishnu awakes to find a demon has taken earth’s most precious treasures for himself. Vishnu enlists King Manu’s help while he changes into something quite unexpected!
Magic Fish is commissioned by The Place, GemArts and Pavilion Dance South West and supported by The Unicorn Theatre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England. After an initial R&D period in Spring 2016 at The Unicorn Theatre and audience led workshops in London schools the performances were developed into three final performances, one of which was The Magic Fish.
