String Theatre presents The Crow’s Tale, which tells the story of a crow with colourful rainbow feathers that in the middle of a snowy winter travels to the sun to ask for warmth, as all the animals are cold and hungry.
Crow embarks on a journey that will transform his appearance forever, while kindness, generosity and courage will shine through. The story is highly visual, retold using string marionettes and sophisticated lighting. The Crow’s Tale, inspired by a Lenni Lenape Native American legend, is based on a picture book (of the same name) by Naomi Howarth.
Based in London, String Theatre was founded in 2011 by puppeteers Stan Middleton and Soledad Zárate. It presents live performances using long-string wood-carved marionettes on a custom-built touring stage. The company tours its productions in festivals and theatres around the world (so far Argentina, Bosnia, France, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Italy, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Spain, South Korea, Switzerland, Tunisia, Turkey, UK, Uruguay).
The Crow’s Tale is on:
January 3 at 2.30pm and 7pm, Peckham Theatre,
January 11 at 11am and 1pm, Lyric Hammersmith,
February 17 at 10am, Greenwich Theatre
