Travel to Kenya and follow in Handa’s footsteps as she journeys to see her best friend Akeyo, in the next village. Handa is taking seven delicious fruits as a surprise – but seven different animals have seven very different ideas…could you resist the sweet-smelling guava? How about a ripe red mango or a tangy purple passion fruit? A blend of physical performance, puppetry, live music and song combine to create an intimate, magical production with audience participation.

Come and share in the magical tangerine surprise!

The small audience sit on cushions and mats around the stage for an intimate 40 minute experience, and there is a chance to join in the dancing at the end.

Suitable for 2 – 5 years

Original adaptation and production of Handa’s Surprise conceived and created by Slavka Jovanovic and Marleen Vermuelen. Designed by Sophia Lovell Smith / Puppet design by Peter O’Rourke. Photo: Ellie Kurttz
