A Heart at Sea

About

A Heart at Sea

A Heart at Sea is a piece of storytelling gig-theatre with stunning visuals and beautiful live music coming together to create a breath-taking spectacle.

Original songs written and performed by Avi Simmons, and haunting live looped soundscapes, tell the story of a Boy who bottles up his heart and throws it into the sea.

Intricate puppets are swept through transforming wooden worlds that are held within a beautifully carved chest. Puppets roam on this unique contraption to recount the story of whales, tiny boats, and beards.

Join our hero as he embarks on a wild, nautical journey to recover his missing heart. This is a piece of heart-warming storytelling that will resonate with all ages.

Suitable for ages 7+
