Whispering in the egg

STAR Flower, the new show by Whis­pering Woods comes to the egg at Bath Theatre Royal on  Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th February, starting half-term with a bang.

The company that created a magical production among the trees of Prior Park last year, now brings elements of the natural world indoors as two skillful performers present exquisite aerial acrobatics enhanced by visual projections in a delicate musical soundscape.

Somewhere between human and animal, two nocturnal creatures find friendship in their night-time world and paint the night sky with a rainbow of colours before transforming and letting go as dawn breaks. They play with the edges of what we think of as real and the nature of human relationships in a world which is emotionally vivid, dreamlike and deliciously fun.

Whispering Woods create site specific performances in ancient woodland and innovative spaces, bringing ancient tales to life using circus acrobatics, live music and narrative to weave a transporting journey for the audience amongst the trees. Strong visuals, a dynamic pace and a hint of “faereality” make their productions a fabulous experience for all ages.

Star Flower is on stage at 11.30am and 3pm on both days. It is suitable for audiences aged five and older.
