Once Upon a Fire is a dance and story-telling production aimed at children and families. 3 Performers will delve into the treasure trove of stories from our continent and beyond and weave them together into a new story, celebrated in dance. This cross-disciplinary production combines dance, traditional storytelling, object play, vocal mis-en-scene, physical characterisation and comedy.
Once Upon a Fire is a new play developed as part of the Inspiring a Generation programme. It will officially premiere at the Obs Family Festival in Cape Town in March but will be available from mid February 2015.
