Theatre: Pinnochio......

This was physical theatre, dance, human puppetry, clever light effects, with the only dialogue given by a six handed white gloved 'face' glowing in HV light. It was amazing!

Jasmin Vardimon Company presents a brand new adaptation of the classic tale, Pinocchio. Based on the original book by Collodi and performed by Vardimon’s multi-talented dancers, Pinocchio will bring to life the famous marionette as he embarks on a fantastic journey to become a human boy.

‘A conscience is that still small voice that people won’t listen to.’ – Carlo Collodi, Pinoccho

Showcasing Vardimon’s uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, Pinocchio will combine physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance to examine the idea of what it means to be human.

With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour, Pinocchio will take audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery through the parameters of this timeless and beloved fable.


Daughter had a spare ticket so with her O, R and D we went to the venue Dance East on the Ipswich Waterfront. Not sure how many people this theatre holds but it was a totally full house. 90 minutes without an interval kept us all silently spellbound. D had said before he hated dancy stuff, R had seen it before as a trip with college and O is only seven. ...we all came out saying how much we enjoyed it.
