Overview

It’s a windy day – perfect for hanging out the washing. But there's a suprise on the clothes line - a child from the clouds is caught up with the sheets! How can we make friends when we're from different worlds?It’s a windy day – perfect for hanging out the washing.

DNA Puppetry is a company with an international reputation for creating captivating wisual theatre for families with very young children. DNA performed the delightful 'Atishoo!' at PIAF in 2013Cloud Chld explores the bond between parent and child in a touching and delightful way. While hanging out the washing an older couple find that a cloud child has tumbled down from the sky. The woman cares for the child and helps it to learn all the things a human child does. The Cloud Child is delighted but can it learn to be happy with it's feet on the ground?
Cloud Child is a highly visual, non-verbal show, which uses Makaton sign language, and is therefore suitable for children with special needs. DNA gratefully acknowledges financial support from the City of Fremantle for these performances and activities and that this event takes place on the land of the Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation.

Concept design and direction: Rachel Riggs
Performed by: Lynda Moylan and Adam Bennett
Original Music: Verbal Vigilante Music

There is also included and interactive early years play session with everyday objects and materials starting with the element of air, encouraging young children to understand their emotions and relationships. This session is led by DNA's experienced early years artist with full awareness of the children's needs and led by the children's responses and actions. There is lots of spontaneous play inititated by the artist but led by the children.

Cloud Child is also at six early years settings in Fremantle at the end of November 2017. for more information visit www.imaginaryleaps.com/clouds.htm or email info@dynamicnewanimation.co.uk
