Dancing Brick

Once upon a time there was a man and his wife who loved one another dearly, and although they were happy there was just one thing they longed for: a child of their own. So one cold, white winter’s day, they sculpt a daughter out of snow and something magical and extraordinary happens.

Our collaboration with the Unicorn Theatre is a visual and fun retelling of the russian folktale the Snow Child. Set entirely in a ball pit, these two lost skiers tell the story of a couple who, through imagination, creativity and love, create a child entirely out of snow.
