Francis Footwork

This event has ended

Pavilion Theatre, Friday 8th November - Saturday 9th November

From the company that brought you the international, award-winning hit The Wolf and Peter comes a magical, empowering new tale from David Bolger that celebrates individuality and encourages everyone to dance their own dance.

Once upon a dance floor…in a kingdom not so far away, lived Francis Footwork.

Francis Footwork is no ordinary girl – she is an extraordinary dancer. When young King Two Lefties ascends to the throne, he is convinced by trusted adviser Colonel Headbanger to rule the land with an iron fist. He wants to end all dancing.

“Dancing is like dreaming with your feet. Colonel Headbanger doesn’t like dreams as they can give people ideas. People with ideas can be dangerous.”

So Francis and her friends come together to teach him a dance lesson he will never forget!

The production is the perfect introduction for young people to contemporary dance and teaches children, while reminding parents, that its easy for bad things to happen right under our noses, as freedom can be easily taken away before we know it.

Friday 8th November - Saturday 9th November
