On Saturday 23rd January at 1:30 pm in Ferryside Village Hall, Hall terrace there will be a performance of Tales from the Taiga, by the Cardigan based Small World Theatre who have worked across Wales and overseas. This will be followed by a bring and share tea, so please get baking, and then there will be a discussion on what we think about the natural areas that we have around Ferryside, and how these can be safeguarded and enhanced for future generation. While this is going on there will also be a shadow puppet workshop for children.
This wonderful tale comes from the Nanai people who live in the frozen Taiga forests of Siberia. Magical creatures are played by puppets and there is music and story-telling. It will be fun for everyone. The play has a strong environmental theme and will be followed by shadow puppet workshop for children, and a discussion on safeguarding the natural environment around Ferryside for others, with a view to producing a map of the area’s natural resources.
The event will finish at about 4:30 pm. It is FREE, everyone is welcome, and the performance is suitable for all ages.The Forum cafe will be open selling fresh coffee, tea and juices.
What audiences have thought of ‘Tales from the Taiga’:
“Excellent! Really thought provoking and beautifully presented!”
“Fantastic, engrossing, full of surprises. I am 58 and I enjoyed it as much as the kids.”
“What an amazing time we all had! The performance was just the right length.”
“Its a wonderful show and a day that will stay with me and the children for a long time.”
